Straight Line News Network

Srinagar, Oct 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday arrived in Rajouri district to celebrate the auspicious occasion of Diwali with the army troops guarding the Line of Control, DNA reported. The report added that PM Modi distributed sweets to the soldiers to mark the festive celebrations.

The PM arrived in Rajouri in the afternoon on Sunday after directly flying to the Army Brigade Headquarters in the border district to interact with the troops deployed along the LoC, DNA quoted officials as saying.

This is his first visit to the valley after the Centre abrogated Article 370, which granted special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, on August 5.

Last year, PM Modi had visited the border positions of Uttarakhand. After taking over as prime minister in 2014, PM Modi visited the Siachen glacier base camp on his first Diwali as the PM of India.

Every year, the plan of visit is kept secret and the place of visit is revealed only through his Twitter handle. As part of the schedule, prime minister visits the jawans and distributes sweets amongst them.
