He also made an unscheduled stop at Chango village, close to Somdu, to wish people on Diwali. “Everyone wants to spend Diwali with their loved ones, hence I am with you all,” said PM Modi. “When the earthquake took place in Gujarat, I was celebrated Diwali with families of victims. So don’t think I am doing this only because I am the PM,” he said.”The nation can sleep peacefully only since you are up and on vigil. If weren’t for you, we wouldn’t be able to catch sleep reassuredly,” said the PM.”Crores have lit diyas for the jawans. Film superstars, sports personalities, politicians, businessmen,farmers etc all had sent #Sandesh2Soldiers,” he added. “Whenever the armed forces had an opportunity to achieve something, they have always made us proud,” he said praising the soldiers. “In my very first public meeting after I was declared PM candidate, I invited ex-servicemen in Rewari, I promised OROP. I promised OROP when I was PM candidate and unfortunately those in power at that time did not even know what exactly it was,” said PM Modi.PM Modi offers sweets to ITBP, Indian Army and Dogra Scouts personnel in Sumdo, Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh
