He said there was lot of water in the hills but still there was darkness in the country.
"There is so much water in the hills but the nation is in darkness. What is the reason behind it? We can generate power through water in the mountains, but these people have no time," he said.
The youth of the hill state was suffering due to lack of development, said Modi.
"The youth of Uttarakhand is leaving because of lack of opportunities. There is scope for tourism but no growth," he said.
"They want people to remain poor, so their governments can go on," he said.
