In a heartwarming gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued his longstanding tradition of celebrating Diwali with Indian soldiers, this time in the rugged terrain of Himachal Pradesh’s Lepcha. Dressed in olive green camouflage, the prime minister addressed the soldiers, expressing profound appreciation for their dedicated service to the nation.

During the interaction, Modi revealed, “There has not been a single Diwali in the last 30-35 years that I have not celebrated with you (Army jawans). When I was neither the PM nor the CM, I still used to go to the border on the occasion of Diwali.” He emphasized the significance of the locations where security forces are deployed, stating, “For me, a place where our security forces are deployed is no less than a temple.”

Sharing a sentiment close to his heart, Modi stated, “Jaha aap hai, wahi mera tyohaar hai (My festival is wherever you are).” The prime minister, known for his consistent Diwali celebrations with soldiers, showcased photos of the emotional and pride-filled interaction on social media platform X (formerly Twitter).

In a symbolic gesture, Modi fed sweets to the jawans, highlighting the sacrifices made by these guardians of the nation. His post on X read, “Spending Diwali with our brave security forces in Lepcha, Himachal Pradesh has been an experience filled with deep emotion and pride. Away from their families, these guardians of our nation illuminate our lives with their dedication.”

Lepcha, situated in the challenging Lahaul-Spiti district, covers an expansive 13,835 sq km. The region faces severe climatic conditions, with a substantial portion designated as a cold desert, experiencing winter temperatures dropping below minus 20 degrees Celsius.

Prime Minister Modi’s commitment to celebrating Diwali with soldiers, whether stationed on the International Border, the Line of Actual Control, or the Line of Control, underscores his unwavering support and respect for the armed forces. His most recent Diwali celebration with soldiers occurred in Himachal Pradesh’s Lepcha on October 30, 2016.
