Dehradun, May 19: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday offered prayers at Badrinath Temple in Uttarakhand.
Earlier in the day , after spending last night meditating inside a cave, PM Modi again offered prayers at the Kedarnath temple.
He later thanked the Election Commission for permitting him to visit the Himalayan shrine and take a break from the gruelling election campaign.
The Prime Minister said that he was completely cut off from the world inside the specially-created cave, which was furnished with amenities such as power, an attached toilet, a telephone, a CCTV etc.
“There was no communication, only a small window through which I could see the temple,” he stated.
Modi further stated “I don’t ask for anything from the God. I think, the God has made us to give something to the society”.
The Prime Minister also hailed the redevelopment work at Kedarnath after the 2013 deluge left town battered and said a dedicated team was engaged in the process. “I monitor the work through video conference from time-to-time,” he said.
