New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today wished the people of Uttarakhand on the state’s 21st foundation day.

On November 9, 2000, Uttarakhand (then Uttaranchal) was formed as the 27th state of India. It was carved out of Uttar Pradesh.

PM Modi took to Twitter to greet the people on the occasion of Uttarakhand Sthapna Divas.

“Hearty congratulations to the residents of Uttarakhand on the state’s foundation day. Leading on the path of progress, this state full of natural wealth and natural beauty will continue to touch new heights of such development,” the Prime Minister tweeted in Hindi.

On the 21st foundation day of the state of Uttarakhand, many programs will be organized virtually at the capital Dehradun and all district headquarters today.
