Modi rally in Himachal: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday heaped praise on Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur for his leadership style and works done by him in the hilly state in a short span of one year. Addressing a BJP rally in Dharamshala, commemorating the one year of BJP government in Himachal Pradesh, he said that CM Thakur has worked hard to resolve the issue of warter crisis.
Targeting the Congress, he said for forty years, country’s ex-servicemen were asking for ‘One Rank, One Pension’. “But the previous government allocated just Rs 500 crore for it. When we came to power, we implemented OROP and ensured welfare of our ex-servicemen,” he said.
The BJP had wrested power from the Congress in the state assembly elections last year.
