PM Narendra Modi addresses soldiers at Longewala Post in Rajasthan.
Here are the Highlights from PM Modi’s speech
- I salute you all. If you all are there, then the nation is there, it’s citizens are safe and hence festivals happen. I thank you all on behalf of all citizens of India.
- I bring their good wishes, blessings and gratitude and coney it to you all in person. While the nation celebrates Diwali today, you all are here, protecting the nation. That sense of duty, that sacrifice, is worthy of praise. Not just you, the sacrifice of your families are also worthy of praise. All Indians thank for this.
- Some people may wonder why does Modi ji go to meet soldiers year after year on Diwali. But tell me one thing, Diwali is a festival we celebrate with family, and with those, we call our own… so each year I spend time with you all because you all are my own, my family. I bring sweets for you all today. But these are not just from me. It is from all 130 crore Indians.
