PM Modi is attending the event organised by Dwarka Sri Ram Leela Society at DDA Ground in Dwarka Sector 10.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrated Dussehra at Dwarka's Ramlila ground and was accompanied by Delhi BJP leaders like Manoj Tiwari and Rajesh Gehlot.

Speaking at the Ramlila ground in Dwarka, Modi urged the citizens to take pledge to take eco-friendly initiatives. "On this Vijayadashami, at a time when we mark 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, I have a request for my fellow citizens. Let us take up a mission this year and work to achieve it. This mission can be, not wasting food, conserving energy, saving water," he said.

PM Modi attended the event organised by Dwarka Sri Ram Leela Society at DDA Ground in Dwarka Sector 10.

"India is the land of festivals and our festivals unite us," PM Modi said.

Usually high dignitaries join the Dussehra celebrations at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. In 2016, the prime minister had attended the Dussehra function in Lucknow during his first stint in office.

Earlier in the day, PM Modi 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 appealled to the nation to take inspiration from Lord Ram to fight the evil forces not just on the outside but also within.

Dussehra marks the end of Navratri and is celebrated on the tenth day of Navratri festival and the triumph of good over evil is celebrated.
