As per news report of The Indian Express, “You all are witness to the inauguration of Adi Shankaracharya Samadhi here today. His devotees are present here in spirit. All maths and ‘jyotirlingas’ in the country are connected with us today,” PM Modi said. Taking about the redevelopment of Kedarnath after 2013, PM Modi said, “After 2013 destruction, people used to think if Kedarnath could be redeveloped. But a voice within me always told me that Kedarnath will be redeveloped again. “I have regularly reviewed redevelopment works at Kedarnath from Delhi. I reviewed progress of different works being carried out here through drone footage. I want to thank all ‘rawals’ here for their guidance for these works,” he added.
