PM Modi to visit Kedarnath on November 5

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Uttrakhand for the second time on November 5 and will pay a visit to the Himalayan pilgrim village of Kedarnath. He will also lay the foundation for Rs 250 crore worth of Kedarpuri rehabilitation projects.

PM Modi has made numerous visits to Kedarnath, since becoming Prime Minister of the country in 2014. He has travelled extensively throughout the Himalayas and has practised meditation. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, he was unable to attend Kedarnath last year.

Prime Minister Modi had previously visited Rishikesh on his first visit to the state on October 7 to launch an oxygen plant at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
