    For the seventh consecutive year, the Prime Minister will spend Diwali with soldiers. He is scheduled to visit Jaisalmer, where he will interact with jawans, including from the Border Security Force (BSF). His visit comes a day after 11 people, including five soldiers, were killed in ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops in several areas in north Jammu and Kashmir.

    On Friday, PM Modi had appealed to the people to light a diya on Diwali as a salute to the soldiers guarding the nation’s borders. “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 said.

All of you must light a Diya for soldiers today and express your respect for them. #Salute2Soldiers.”

    प्रधानमंत्री श्री @narendramodi ने इस दीपावली पर सभी देशवासियों से एक आग्रह किया है कि भारत की रक्षा में लगे सभी सैनिकों के सम्मान में एक दिया अपने घर पर जलाना है।
