New Delhi: Indian PM Narendra Modi on Saturday wished the nation on Diwali festival.

"Wishing everyone a Happy Diwali! May this festival further brightness and happiness. May everyone be prosperous and healthy," he tweeted.

Narendra Modi on Friday urged citizens to light candles this Diwali as a salute to soldiers "who fearlessly protect our nation."

In a tweet, the Prime Minister said, "This Diwali, let us also light a Diya as a salute to Soldiers 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."

President Ram Nath Kovind also greeted the nation and posted: "On the auspicious occasion of #Diwali , I extend my heartiest greetings and best wishes to all the fellow citizens living in India and abroad. May this grand festival of happiness and light bring delight, peace and prosperity to each and every house of our country."
