The state of Uttarakhand became the 27th state of India on this day in 2000. The hill state was carved out of Uttar Pradesh on November 9, 2000, under the BJP government, after a long-drawn agitation. The Chief Minister also inaugurated an exhibition organized at the BJP office on the occasion of State Foundation Day in Dehradun.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday greeted Uttarakhand on its statehood day and said that people from the hill State are making phenomenal contributions, across many sectors, to nation-building. He also wished that Uttarakhand keeps progressing in the coming years. “Statehood Day greetings to the people of Uttarakhand. This is a state closely associated with nature and spirituality. People from this state are making phenomenal contributions, across many sectors, to nation-building. May Uttarakhand keeps progressing in the coming years,” PM Modi said in a tweet.
