“Your prime servant has promised the soldiers to bring in OROP. And, I am happy that over 20 lakh soldiers got benefit of this. We have disbursed Rs 35,000 crore to families of retired soldiers after the implementation of OROP,” said Modi during the rally.
India conducted a pre-dawn surgical strike in Pakistan knocking off terror camps and launch pads using a squadron of Mirage and 1000 kilograms of bombs.
