PM Modi celebrates Diwali with soldiers at Rajasthan's Longewala post

Tweeted by AIR
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today celebrated Diwali with soldiers at the historic Longewala post of Jaisalmer district in Rajasthan. Addressing soldiers on this occasion he said, India is proud of its armed forces, who protect the nation courageously. Prime Minister Modi said valour of Indian soldiers has always triumphed in every challenge whether it is the peaks of the Himalayas, the stretch of desert, dense forests or the depths of seas.


The Prime Minister said India showed great valour at Longewala and whenever history on the excellence of soldiers will be written and read, this Battle will be remembered. Saluting the sacrifice of soldiers' families, he said his Diwali is complete only when he spends it with soldiers.


Stating that expansionism is, in a way, a mental disorder and reflects 18th-century thinking, he said  the whole world is troubled by expansionist forces today.  He asserted that India is becoming a strong voice against this thinking. India's strategy is clear as it believes in the policy of understanding and making others understand. But if attempts are made to test us, the reply they receive is intense, the Prime Minister asserted.


The Prime Minister emphasized that only that nation is secure which has the capability to face the attackers and intruders. He said irrespective of advances in international cooperation and changes in equations, it can’t be forgotten that vigilance is the key to security, ness is the basis of happiness, and strength is the confidence of victory.
