President Ram Nath Kovind urged the people to bring happiness in the lives of poor by lighting the lamp of love, care and sharing.
"Greetings and best wishes to fellow citizens on the auspicious occasion of Deepawali. Let us on this day try to bring happiness in the lives of those who are less fortunate and needy by lighting the lamp of love, care and sharing," President tweeted.
According to reports, PM Modi, like every year, will celebrate the festival of lights with soldiers serving in forward areas.
Last year, he celebrated Diwali with the Army and the ITBP personnel near the India-China border in Uttarakhand.
After becoming the prime minister in 2014, PM Modi had spent his Diwali at Siachen with the jawans.
In 2015, he had visited the Punjab border on Diwali. His visit coincided with 50 years of the 1965 Indo-Pak war.
