Extending greetings on the Pongal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the festival depicts the emotion of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat.’

The PM said this while attending the Pongal celebrations at the residence of Union Minister of State (MoS) L Murugan in the national capital.

“The country celebrated the festival of Lohri yesterday. Some people are celebrating Makar Sankranti today and some people will celebrate tomorrow, Magh Bihu is also coming, I extend my greetings to the countrymen for these festivals,” he said.

PM Modi further said that he felt like celebrating Pongal with his kith and kin.

“Wish you all a very happy Pongal! On this pious occasion, I wish happiness, prosperity and contentment to flow in your lives. Today, I feel like I am celebrating Pongal with my kith and kin,” he said.

Puducherry Lt Governor and Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan was also present on the occasion.

“The festival of Pongal depicts the emotion of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’…This emotion of unity will give strength to the ‘Viksit Bharat’ of 2047,” the PM said.

He further said that all the festivals are, in one way or other, connected to agriculture.

“Saint Tiruvallur has said that ‘Good harvest, educated men, and honest traders together build the nation’. It’s a tradition that on Pongal the first harvest is offered to God. At the heart of this tradition lies our farmers. In fact, all our festivals are, in one way or other, connected to agriculture,” he said.

The Prime Minister further said that more than three crore farmers in the country are involved in the production of Shree Anna (millet grains). If we promote Shree Anna, then it directly benefits these three crore farmers.

PM Modi also enjoyed a cultural program at the residence of Murgan on the pious occasion of Pongal.

Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated by the Tamils. It is a celebration to thank the Sun, nature, and the various farm animals that help to contribute to a bountiful harvest.

Celebrated over four days, Pongal also marks the beginning of the Tamil month called Thai, which is considered an auspicious month. (ANI)
