PM Modi emphasised on the cultural heritage centers’ revival and said, “A grand temple of Lord Shri Ram is coming up in Ayodhya. Ayodhya is getting its glory back. Just two days ago, the whole world saw the grand celebration of Deepotsav in Ayodhya. Today we can imagine how the ancient cultural form of India must have been”

The Prime Minister said that the third decade of the 21st century belongs to Uttarakhand.

After 2013 floods, future ready infrastructure was the need of an hour for geographically sensitive areas like Uttarakhand, keeping in consideration the safety of devotees and natives. Besides, it is necessary that cost-benefit analysis of any development project is done prior under public scrutiny.
