Tribute to Sardar Patel:

Paying tributes to Sardar Patel, the stalwart who unified India, PM Modi said “ let us always promote the spirit of unity, as Sardar Patel would have desired.”

Clean Siachen Drive:

"Our soldiers at Siachen Glacier are not only protecting the borders but also conducting the 'Clean Siachen' drive. For this commitment, I salute the Indian Army. In such conditions to segregate garbage and ensure its management is a a very important work in itself," PM said.

November 12, 2019- the world will celebrate 550th birth anniversary  of Guru Nanak Ji as Prakash Utsav, who had not only impacted India, but countries across the world honour him for his wisdom and ideals.  “From Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji we learn the importance of service.
