Dehradun, Feb 12 (IBNS): Ahead of the Assembly election in the state, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed a rally in Uttarakhand's Garhwal region.

Speaking to people there, he said Uttarakhand has tremendous potential and talent.

Criticising the incumbent government in state, he said, "It is because of them that development has come to a halt in Uttarakhand."

"Not just in terms of development, they are lacking on every issue," said he.

Modi said the government here has not been able to ensure the safety of women in the state.

He said the upcoming election will be a make or break the state.

"Your fate is in your hands so choose wisely," claimed Modi.

He said tourism is key for Uttarakhand and infrastructural development must be given a boost.

"That will enhance the economy of the state and create jobs," Modi said.

The PM said roads in Uttarakhand are in a terrible condition.

"We are doing our bit from the Centre by giving Rs. 12,000 crore for an all-weather road - The Char Dham highway - which will benefit you all immensely," said he.

He promised to do much more for the state if BJP comes to power in the state.

"We know our responsibilities, unlike the current government," said PM Modi.

Uttarakhand goes to poll in a single phase on Feb 15.

The counting of votes will take place on March 11.
