Modi’s Message to the Indian Soldiers
We have to celebrate our festivals on this auspicious occasion by remembering the brave soldiers of our India. We have to light a lamp in the house in honor of these brave sons and daughters of our nation India. I also want to tell my brave soldiers that even though you are on the border, the whole country is with you, and wishing you.
