Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday reached Kedarnath and offered prayers at the holy shrine. "People have understood that whatever Modi spoke in public meetings were only jumlas (poll gimmicks), not to be fulfiled", he said. "I offered to help in rebuilding but Centre became nervous", PM Modi said.

The prime minister promised the reconstruction of Kedarpuri, with improved facilities for devotees, and said the reconstruction would be expensive but there will be no dearth of funds.

"The floods of 2013 had made all of us extremely sad".

"I assure you that over 10 lakh pilgrims will come to Kedarnath next year".

Citing Sikkim, he said that the state government has taken full advantage of organic farming and exhorted Uttarakhand to do the same.

Hey men, stop making #MeToo all about you
This statistic became headline news, reported on the BBC , Lateline, Al Jazeera , CNN and various other news outlets. We need to listen with an open and compassionate heart rather than a defensive #notallmen response.

"We need more corporate support to work on the development of the country".

"Building modern infrastructure in Kedarnath but the traditional soul will be preserved and will ensure environmental laws not flouted", PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister said he is fortunate to now get a chance to work for the development of Kedarnath and the whole of Uttarakhand. "We will also ensure the environment is not damaged".

This is the second visit of Prime Minister to the shrine this season.

During the visit, the PM is scheduled to lay the foundation stone for several reconstruction projects including the renovation of the tomb of Adi Guru Shankaracharya which was devastated in the flash floods that hit the state in 2013.
