Today is Diwali, a celebration that celebrates triumph over defeat, light over darkness, and awareness over ignorance. It’s a time to celebrate life when everyone wishes to embrace divinity with their loved ones. Our jawans are stationed far away from their families and homes in order to protect our nation and everyone who lives there. They commemorate the occasion by keeping a watchful eye that shines in the darkness surrounded by foes.
As a symbol of respect for these brave hearts who never hesitate to step back, even if it means sacrificing their lives, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrates his festival with our jawans, as per his old tradition. The Prime Minister is in Rajouri, Jammu, and Kashmir, with Army jawans to enjoy the festivities and give them the feeling that the entire nation and their blessings are always with them. Since taking office in 2014, Prime Minister Modi has continued the tradition he began.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Nowshera for Diwali celebrations with Indian Army personnel, paid respect to brave soldiers who died in the line of duty in Jammu and Kashmir. PM Modi is spending his second Diwali with the army in Nowshera’s border district. The Prime Minister celebrated Diwali with troops at the Army Division headquarters in Rajouri earlier this year.
The Prime Minister’s visit comes at a time when a 24-day-long standoff has erupted in Poonch. The presence of the Prime Minister, according to officials, will boost the morale of the jawans on the ground. Meanwhile, Army Chief of Staff General M M Naravane arrived in Jammu and Kashmir on a two-day visit on Wednesday and conducted an aerial inspection of advanced areas in the region.
PM celebrated the event with the jawans by giving them sweets, noting that India is commemorating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav at the time. Since gaining independence, we’ve come a long way. Purchasing defence equipment for security personnel used to take years, but with the vision of Aatmnirbhar Bharat, India is now equipped and ready.
We need to improve and adapt our military capabilities to the changing world and modes of combat. We used to rely heavily on imports in the defence sector, says the Prime Minister, highlighting his government’s efforts to boost indigenous capabilities.
Our girls are now being admitted into premier military schools, according to the PM.
Every Diwali, I’ve spent with soldiers protecting our borders. I’ve brought with me the blessings of millions of Indians for our troops here today while PM Modi says while speaking to troops in Nowshera, J&K.
On Diwali, I have brought you the blessings of 130 million people of my country asserted the PM.
