    Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrated Diwali with Army and ITBP personnel near the India-China border at Harshil, a cantonment area situated at a height of 7,860 feet, in Uttarkashi district. He distributed sweets among jawans and appreciated them for their hard work to protect the country. "You are not only protecting one corner of our land. By securing the country's borders, you are making safe the lives and dreams of 125 crore Indians," Modi told the soldiers in the presence of Army Chief General Bipin Rawat. Speaking on 'one rank, one pension' (OROP) for ex-servicemen, he said that his government fulfilled the longstanding demand of veterans. "As an RSS member, I got opportunity to live among Army men. At that time, I heard a lot about 'one rank, one pension'. Many governments came and went. Since I was connected to you I understood your emotions. So after becoming prime minister, it was my responsibility to fulfil your dream," Modi said. He also met residents of the border village of Bagori and offered prayers on the banks of Bhagirathi, a tributary of the Ganga in Harshil. PM Modi also visited Kedarnath and reviews the reconstruction project in Kedarpuri. He performed Rudrabhishek of lord Shiva as the famed temple of Kedarnath. The rituals were supervised by chief priest of Kedarnath T Gangadhar Ling and Modi's teertha purohit Praveen Tiwari. Uttarakhand Governor Baby Rani Maurya, Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat and Chief Secretary Utpal Kumar Singh accompanied PM Modi during his Kedarnath visit.
