PM in Uttarakhand Live: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday inaugurated and laid foundation stones of projects worth over Rs 17,500 crore in Haldwani ahead of the assembly elections in Uttarakhand.
The inaugurated projects include three different stretches of the Chardham all-weather road which have been widened, Nagina-Kashipur National Highway, Suring Gad hydel project and sewage works under the Namami Gange programme at Nainital.
At the rally, Prime Minister Modi also targeted previous governments saying that they “looted Uttarakhand with both hands”. “Uttarakhand has completed 20 years of its formation. In these years, you have also seen such people running the government who used to say -‘you may loot Uttarakhand, but save my government’. These people looted Uttarakhand with both hands,” he said in Haldwani.
This is Prime Minister Modi’s second visit to the state this month. On his last visit to Uttarakhand on December 4, Modi had unveiled projects worth over Rs 18,000 crore in Dehradun besides addressing an election rally.
