  • Jan Seva is Prabhu Seva (Taking care of the people is equal to taking care of god).
  • In 2013, I was not the Prime Minister, but the Chief Minister of Gujarat. During that time, the Gujarat floods had made me very sad. I tried to help in rebuilding, but the Centre became nervous.
  • We want to show by the example of Kedarnath, how an ideal 'Tirth Kshetra' should be and how the wellbeing of both, priests and pilgrims should be given importance
  • We are striving to build quality infrastructure in Kedarnath.
  • Kedarnath will be modern, but all the old traditions and ethos will be preserved.
