“The hills’ development has not only halted but the graph is going downhill. When this state was born, we presumed that Congress would make the government here.
But still, PM Vajpayee paved the way for the formation of a separate hill state, without worrying about political benefits. He sowed the seeds of this small state, and now PM Modi would nourish it to realise the dream of an ideal state.” BJP national president Amit Shah said while addressing a public meeting after inaugurating newly-constructed Kailash Hospital on Dehradun-Haridwar highway on Friday. Shah informed that PM Modi is arriving in state capital on 27 December to inaugurate all weather four-lane roads connecting all four pilgrim centres. He said, “We want to make a roadmap that will catapult Uttarakhand the most developed state without compromising on its spiritual essence and progress.”
