PM greets countrymen on Dussehra”

New Delhi, Sep 30 Prime Minister Narendra Modi today wished the countrymen on the occasion of Dussehra and urged the people to undertake a pledge for contributing to the nation building by 2022.

The event also saw former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Kovind's other half Savita Kovind attending the celebration.

"This day makes us recall the victory of good over evil".

Speaking of last year's celebrations, PM Modi spoke about terrorism as the festival had come after India conducted surgical strikes when Indian Army soldiers across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) burst terror outfits and also revenged the Uri attack where 18 Indian soldiers were martyred. "Lord Ram's victory should inspire us to create a new India by 2022", he further added.

"All our actions should be weighed by the ethics and morality involved. We should always strive to beat the evil by our own good".

Later effigies of Ravan, Kumbhakarn and Meghnad were burnt at Delhi's Red Fort Ground.

"We need the principles of Lord Ram to defeat the evils of society, which includes poverty", the President added.

Addressing the crowd at Madhav Das Park near Red Fort Ground, President Kovind said the ideals of Lord Rama will only be successful if we follow them in our lives as well.

"Such a festival should not be just about celebrations, it should also lead to some mission", the prime minister said in a brief speech.
