New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday extended his greetings to the nation on the occasion of Dussehra. "Greetings on the auspicious occasion of Vijaya Dashami," he wrote on Twitter along with a video message on the festival. He appeals to the nation to take inspiration from Lord Ram and continue to fight the evil forces not just on the outside but also within.

The prime minister is likely to attend the Dussehra celebrations at Dwarka area in Delhi on Tuesday. The event has been organised by Dwarka Sri Ram Leela Society at DDA Ground in Dwarka Sector 10. In 2016, the prime minister had attended the Dussehra function in Lucknow during his first stint in office.

Rajesh Gehlot, ex MLA and chairman of the society, said the PM is scheduled to reach the venue at 5.30 pm. There was, however, no official confirmation from the prime minister's office on this. Usually high dignitaries join the Dussehra celebrations at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi.

President Ram Nath Kovind also wished the nation on the festival saying, "The festival is a celebration of the victory of good over evil. It inspires us to live by honesty and truthfulness. May the day bring joy and prosperity to the people of the country."

Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu greeted the people on Dussehra, a festival that symbolises the victory of good over evil. "I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra," he wrote.

"Dussehra is a celebration of the pious and principled path exemplified in the life and deeds of Lord Rama. The festival reminds us that we need to constantly quell the demonic forces and foster goodness and harmony," the vice-president further said.

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, who is in France to receive, on behalf of the Indian Air Force, the first of the 36 Rafale fighter jets, also wished the people on Vijayadashami.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah wished happiness, peace and prosperity for the people on the occasion of Dussehra.
