    PM Modi’s Dussehra greetings on ‘Mann Ki Baat’; India stands firmly with country’s soldiers

    In 70th edition of his monthly programme, Modi urged the people to light a lamp for the brave soldiers, who are celebrating the festival amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Guwahati: Addressing the nation through his monthly radio programe “Mann ki Baat”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that India stands firmly with the country’s security forces and brave soldiers.

    The minister began his speech by extending his wishes on Dussehra adding, “The soldiers are serving the nation away from their family as they guard the country’s borders to ensure that the people in the country are safe from external threats.”

    In 70th edition of his monthly programme, Modi urged the people to light a lamp for the brave soldiers, who are celebrating the festival amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

    He said that many festivals like Eid, Diwali will take place at this time of the year and that during these festivals, and one must remember the brave soldiers who have stood at the borders. “We have to light a lamp at home, in honour of these brave sons and daughters of Mather India,” said the PM.

    Modi’s comment came at a time when the nation is locked in a standoff with China. The standoff is still continuing despite several rounds of high-level talks, dragging the Indo-China ties to a new low.

    The Prime Minister also urged the people to celebrate festivals with restraints and to remember the resolve of ‘vocal for local’ while shopping.

    He said. “Today is the festival of Vijay Dashmi – Dussehra. I extend my best wishes to all of you on this auspicious occasion. This festival of Dussehra is the festival of victory of truth over untruth. But at the same time, it is also a festival of victory of patience over crisis. Today, all of you are living with great restraint, celebrating festivals with modesty. Therefore, in the battle, we are fighting against COVID-19, victory is certain.”
