Trinamool Congress has filed a complaint in the Election Commission of India (ECI) in relation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kedarnath, Uttarakhand.
"Election campaign for last phase of polling for Lok Sabha polls is over, surprisingly Narendra Modi's Kedarnath Yatra is being widely covered by the media for the last 2 days. This is a gross violation of model code of conduct," wrote Trinamool Congress to ECI, reported ANI, on Sunday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday offered prayers at the divine Kedarnath temple in Uttarakhand.
“I'm glad that I got a chance to visit here again. My development mission here includes--prakriti (nature), paryavaran (environment) and paryatan (tourism). Development works are going on in Kedarnath valley,” PM Modi said while interacting with reports after offering prayers.
PM also meditated here inside a cave for 17 hours. This is PM Modi's fourth visit to the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva in the last two years.
Later in the day, PM Modi reached Badrinath, another temple in Uttarakhand's 'char dham' religious circuit.
Kedarnath was devastated in a series of cloudbursts in 2013.
Earlier this month, after the winter break, the portals of Kedarnath and Badrinath shrines reopened for devotees.
