Varanasi, Nov 30: Without taking any names, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at China, saying that the country is giving a befitting reply to the expansionist forces.
He also hit out at the Congress, by stating ‘For us, heritage means our culture, our faith, our values but for others, it means their own idols and family photos.’
Attending the Dev Deepawali festival at Rajghat on the banks of river Ganga, PM Modi, who even lit a diya on the occasion, paid tribute to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country.
‘I pay my tributes to all those, who have laid their lives for the nation. The nation is giving a befitting reply to the expansionist forces, those trying to infiltrate into India or those trying to break India from India,’ he said further.
The Prime Minister also raised the issue of ‘Vocal for Local’ and appealed to the people to use local products during festivals and for gifting purpose.
