Prime Minister Narendra Modi salutes jawans on Diwali. PM Modi also requested all to light a diya for jawans. Like previous years, PM Modi is expected to celebrate Diwali with soldiers in the Western sector. PM’s message comes on a day when three Indian Army personnel lost their lives during unprovoked firing by Pakistani forces along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir. PM Modi said, “This Diwali, let us also light a Diya as a salute to soldiers 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”.
