Unseen Pictures Of PM Narendra Modi With Brave Soldiers
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday celebrated Diwali with the troops deployed in Jammu and Kashmir’s border district of Rajouri and praised them for their valour. Since becoming prime minister in 2014, Modi has interacted with troops serving in tough areas on Diwali.
The visit to Rajouri coincided with Infantry Day celebrations, which is observed to mark the landing of the first Indian troops in Jammu and Kashmir in 1947 to push back Pakistan supported intruders. This is the third time that Modi celebrated Diwali with troops in Jammu and Kashmir since 2014, and the first after the abrogation of Article 370 provisions.
The army personnel were ecstatic and said they feel proud about the prime minister’s “surprise” visit.
“We never thought of the prime minister visiting us and making our Diwali a memorable one… It was a big surprise and we are feeling proud after meeting him,” one of the soldiers said while leaving the venue after the departure of Modi.
