This Diwali, light lamp for Jawans, shop local : PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to remember our soldiers while celebrating festivals and also reiterated that people should prefer local while buying festival products from local artisans and stores.
In his 70th edition of Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began by greeting people on the occasion of Vijayadashami and asked citizens to light a lamp in remembrance of the brave soldiers and security forces who are protecting the nation from external threats amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Lots of festivals like Eid, Diwali will take place at this time of the year. During these festivals, we also have to remember our brave soldiers who have also stood at the borders. We have to light a lamp at home, in honor of these brave sons and daughters of Mother India.”
The Prime Minister also urged people to keep the celebration of festivities low key in view of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and buy festival products from local artisans and stores and promote ‘Vocal For Local’ drive.’
