The PM also laid the foundation stones for a slew of reconstruction projects in Kedarpuri, including renovation of Adi Guru Shankaracharya's tomb which was devastated in the catastrophic flash floods of 2013.

He assured that reconstruction of Kedarpuri, with improved facilities for devotees, will be expensive but there will be no dearth of funds. "But perhaps Baba (Lord Shiva) had decided that the responsibility of doing reconstruction work at Kedarnath should be assigned to no one else but to Baba's son", PM Modi said.

"Pilgrim numbers had decreased after the 2013 tragedy as people were sceptical if proper infrastructure existed here", Modi said.

The Prime Minister claimed that the then UPA government pressurised the Uttarkhand chief minister to decline request of the Gujarat government for the reconstruction activities.

Urging the corporate sector to extend greater support for the development of the country, the prime minister said that his government aims to fully develop India by 2022.
