The Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas & Steel Dharmendra Pradhan said that Char Dham is close to millions of Indians, due to spiritual, religious and cultural reasons. He said that the signing of the MOUs is a significant milestone in the direction of PM Narendra Modi’s vision of developing Badrinath shrine as a mini smart and spiritual city, without compromising on the religious sanctity and mythological importance of the region.

He further continued by saying that the development of sites like Badrinath would also help in attracting more tourists, which in turn would strengthen the economy of the state. Tourism is one of the key industries that plays a critical role in the development of the state.
