Prime Minister Narendra Modi will undertake a two-day visit to Uttarakhand beginning on Saturday to pay obeisance at the Himalayan shrines of Kedarnath and Badrinath.
PM Modi will visit Kedarnath on Saturday and offer prayers at Badrinath the following day. This is the fourth visit of Prime Minister Modi to the Himalayan shrines where he will also review the development and reconstruction work.
According to the committee related to the management of the temple, this visit will be even more special because PM Modi will be reviewing all the works throughout the day.
The portals of Kedarnath shrine were thrown open for pilgrims on May 9 after six months of winter break. Over 2000 pilgrims from different parts of the country attended the opening ceremony of the famous Kedarnath shrine located in Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand.
Many local people get employment during the yatra and this time also they are very much excited and hopeful that this season too it will be beneficial for them.
The Char Dham Yatra to Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri is considered the backbone of Uttarakhand economy.
