“This Diwali, let us also light a Diya as a #Salute2Soldiers who fearlessly protect our nation. Words can’t do justice to the sense of gratitude we have for our soldiers for their exemplary courage. We are also grateful to the families of those on the borders,” he had said.
Like every year, the Prime Minister is likely to celebrate Diwali with troops.
In a separate tweet, he also paid tribute for former PM Jawaharlal Nehru on his 131st birth anniversary.
