“Bharat ka vikaas aur pratyek Bharatvasi ka kalyan (India’s progress and the good of the Indian people),” said PM Modi in response to a tweet asking him what he had asked Lord Kedarnath for.
The PM’s visit to the shrine in Uttarakhand today, came on the eve of its closure for the winter.
In his address there, the PM had said that his government’s work at the shrine will be a model for what a pilgrimage site should be – a site for adventure sports, one to showcase natural beauty, and an ecological model.
“The Himalayas have so much to offer- for spiritual pursuits, for the nature lover, for those interested in adventure, water sports. I invite everyone to come and explore the Himalayas… Through the work we are doing in Kedarnath, we want to show how an ideal ‘Tirth Kshetra’ (pilgrimage spot) should be, how it should be pilgrim friendly and the well-being of the priests should be given importance,” he had said.
PM Modi assured the people that the environment would not be harmed as a result of this development.
He had last visited the shrine in May this year, when it had reopened after the winter.
