PM in Uttarakhand Highlights: prime minister Narendra Modi On Thursday, the foundation stones for projects worth over Rs 17,500 were inaugurated and laid in Haldwani ahead of the Uttarakhand Assembly elections.
The inaugurated projects include three different sections of the Chardham all-weather road that have been widened, the Nagina-Kashipur National Highway, the Suring Gad hydel project and sewage works under the Namami Gange program at Nainital.
At the meeting, Prime Minister Modi also targeted previous governments, saying they “plundered Uttarakhand with both hands”. “Uttarakhand has completed 20 years of its formation. In these years you have also seen such people rule the government, who used to say ‘you can plunder Uttarakhand, but save my government’. These people plundered Uttarakhand with both hands,” he said in Haldwani.
This is Prime Minister Modi’s second visit to the state this month. On his last visit to Uttarakhand on 4 December, Modi had unveiled projects worth over 18,000 crore Rs in Dehradun in addition to addressing an election rally.
