Dehradun, October 20

Uttarakhand Congress has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi describing his today’s visit to Uttarkhand as mere formality and a big disappointment for the people of Uttarakhand.

Surendra Kumar, chief spokesman for former Chief Minister Harish Rawat, said the Prime Minister had only disappointed the people of the state as it has failed to mention even pertinent issues like the funds delayed by the Centre for post-disaster rehabilitation works, shifting of 350 villages that are vulnerable to disasters in the state and the long-standing demand of green bonus for the state. He also castigated the Prime Minister of linking lavatories with Kedarnath shrine. “There was no point talking of sauchalayas in reference to Kedarnath”, he said adding that Kedarnath Dham was not the appropriate place to promote his cleanliness campaign.

Surendra Kumar also reminded that the Prime Minister was only worried about Gujarat. He also held that it was strange that the Prime Minister even failed to even refer to the funds provided to the state by earlier United Progressive Alliance government. — TNS
