Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday greeted the nation on the occasion of Diwali.
“Best wishes to all the people in the country on the occasion of Diwali. May this festival of light brings new light in everyone’s life and our country always stays illuminated with happiness, prosperity and good luck,” PM Modi tweeted in Hindi.
President Ram Nath Kovind urged the people to bring happiness in the lives of the poor by lighting the lamp of love, care, and sharing.
“Greetings and best wishes to fellow citizens on the auspicious occasion of Deepawali. Let us on this day try to bring happiness in the lives of those who are less fortunate and needy by lighting the lamp of love, care, and sharing,” President tweeted.
According to reports, PM Modi, like every year, will celebrate the festival of lights with soldiers serving in forwarding areas. Last year, he celebrated Diwali with the Army and the ITBP personnel near the India-China border in Uttarakhand.
After becoming the prime minister in 2014, PM Modi had spent his Diwali at Siachen with the jawans. In 2015, he had visited the Punjab border on Diwali. His visit coincided with 50 years of the 1965 Indo-Pak war.
