The students from a skill development course at a computer centre in Himachal's Nagrota Surian were travelling to attend PM Narendra Modi's rally in Dharamshala when the bus overturned. The rally is being held to mark the first anniversary of the formation of the Bharatiya Janta Party government in the state. Soon after his arrival, he released a document titled "Maandar Prayaas Ka, Ek Saal Vikas Ka", highlighting achievements of the state government in the last one year.

Himachal Pradesh Governor Jagat Prakash Nadda was also present on the occasion. "Similarly, the decision of the state government to reduce age limit for getting old-age pension beyond any income limit from 80 to 70 years has benefitted more than one lakh people in the state".

"Those who were in the habit of looting, they are now feeling afraid of the country's "chowkidar" and are now abusing him", Modi said, without naming the Opposition Congress.

He described Himachal Pradesh as the land of fearless soldiers who were ever ready to make the supreme sacrifice at the border.

He said, "The Jan Manch programme initiated by the government has proved a boon for the common man in redressing their complaints and demands immediately at their door-steps".

Remembering former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Modi said Himachal Pradesh was the leader's second home and industries were set up in the hilly state at his initiative. People were injured. I pray for them. The condition of five is stated to be critical and they have been admitted to hospital.

Referring to the accident in which almost 43 persons, including 40 students, who were on their way to attend Modi's rally, were injured when their bus skidded off the road in Kangra district, Modi asked the state government to ensure adequate relief measures. The Prime Minister has asked the state government to ensure adequate relief measures.

The Prime Minister urged the people to exercise caution while going back from the rally. "I do not want an accident to take place. I worked here for several years for the party's organisational work".

Apparently countering Rahul Gandhi's jibe that the watchman had himself turned into a thief, Modi said, Chowkidar choro ko chhorne ko tayar nahi (The watchman is not ready to let scamsters go).
