  • Shah'Congress has failed to place electricity poles in the villages of Gujarat for 60 years

However, the Congress has strongly objected to the remarks made by the prime minister.

Modi had visited Kedarnath in May this year when the Himalayan shrine was reopened for devotees after remaining closed for six months for the winter season.

During his 2013 visit, following his survey of the scale of destruction, Narendra Modi had offered undertake reconstruction at the Kedarnath shrine.

Vijay Bahuguna who is now a member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was in Congress when he was the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand in 2013. "He forgot that Congress government at the centre had sanctioned a package of Rs 8000 crore in December 2013 for renovating the temple and the area around it", Congress communication department chief Randeep Surjewals said.

Four years ago, the Narendra Modi, as Gujarat CM, had given a cheque of Rs 2 crore on behalf of his government to the Uttarakhand disaster relief fund.

In June 2013, Uttarakhand was devastated by floods, which destroyed the several towns including Kedarnath. In my excitement I shared the development with the media and within an hour TV channels flashed it, causing a storm in New Delhi.

However, the impact of the lower exchange rate on inflation is set to ease as the annual change of prices due to the pound's decline drops out of the comparison.

"I as the chief minister of Gujarat had offered to take responsibility of reconstructing areas surrounding Kedarnath temple in the aftermath of 2013 tragedy".

Slamming the tactics used by Congress to stop him from laying a helping hand to the shrine which badly needed to be revamped after the floods wreaked havoc on it, Modi said, "I came here to do all that I could for the victims".

Mr Modi, who was at the Kedarnath shrine a day after Diwali, laid the foundation stones of five reconstruction projects.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding, the JSW will renovate and reconstruct the shrines like Adi Shankaracharya Kutir and a museum that houses his belongings and the puja performing holy Ghats that are situated on river Sarasvati. Narendra Modi also gave the assurance to the people of Kedarnath that in the pursuit of providing modern amenities, the traditional look of the place will be kept intact.

The prime minister said his government is taking steps to ensure that resources of the mountains are pooled in for development of the region itself.
