"On Uttarakhand Foundation Day, my greetings to the people of the state which is moving ahead on the path of development," the Prime Minister said in a tweet.
Uttarakhand, which is ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, was formed on November 9, 2000 as the 27th state. It was carved out of Uttar Pradesh.
Located at the foothills of the Himalayas, it is largely a hilly state and has international boundaries with China and Nepal.
