According to the tradition that he has followed every year since he came to power in 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to spend Diwali today with soldiers.

Prime Minister Modi, according to some reports, will be in Gujarat. Though some reports suggest that he will be at a forward area in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer when the country celebrates one of its biggest festivals.

PM Modi, in tribute to the soldiers guiding our borders, tweeted yesterday urging citizens to light Diyas for those who protected the 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,” the Prime Minister tweeted, on the same day four Indian soldiers sacrificed their lives for the country as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir. Three civilians were also killed in the massive shelling that took place.

PM Modi had visited Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district last year to celebrate Diwali with soldiers guarding the Line of Control (LoC).

He was in Uttarakhand the earlier year. Pm Modi, in 2017, had spent the festival of lights with soldiers posted at Gurez sector of north Kashmir.

The prime minister spent his first Diwali in the office with soldiers at Siachen, the world’s highest battlefield. He reportedly spent Diwalis in a similar manner when he was Chief Minister of Gujarat.
