Politics of whole country becomes politics of development: PM

BJP president Amit Shah

Meanwhile, the Congress accused Modi of "disrespecting" traditions during his Kedarnath visit and "misleading" the people on redevelopment work of the shrine after the 2013 deluge.

Narendra Modi had made a two-day visit to flood-ravaged Uttarakhand in 2013 and also undertook an aerial survey of some of the affected areas.

He said, there is nothing except misrepresentation in the negative politics of the opposition and there is no place for the well-being and development of the people in it. He is the first prime minister to offer prayers both at the opening and closing of temple gates - annual events at the 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 also offered a proposal to reconstruct and develop the shrine devastated in Kedarnath after the floods", ANI quoted Bahuguna as saying.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday alleged that the Congress government of Uttarakhand rejected his proposal to redevelop Kedarnath shrine which suffered severe damage in the massive flash floods of 2013.

The PM's visit to the holy site in Uttarakhand today, came on the eve of its closure for the winter.

Though Ghani and Tillerson will be in New Delhi at the same time, diplomatic sources did not confirm if they would meet to discuss the new United States policy of Afghanistan which President Trump announced in August. PM Modi spoke at length about building quality infrastructure in Kedarnath, while preserving traditional ethos. In my excitement I shared the development with the media and within an hour TV channels flashed it, causing a storm in New Delhi.

Ahead of his proposed visit to Islamabad on an invitation by Pakistan army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa, Afghanistan President M Ashraf Ghani is likely to visit New Delhi next week.

Reacting to Modi's claims that the then Congress Government did not allow him as Gujarat chief minister to rebuild the shrine in 2013, Singh said, "It is unfortunate that arrogance marked his address at Kedarnath".

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.
