Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday greeted people on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.

“Eid-ul-Adha greetings. May this festival enhance the spirit of peace and togetherness in our society,” the Prime Minister said in a message here.

Eid-ul-Adha or Bakrid is being celebrated in different parts of the country.

Meanwhile, the BJP on Monday pitched for a debate on observing Bakr-Eid in an “eco-friendly” way, and called upon the intelligentsia to discuss the issue.

Responding to a question on whether Bakr-Eid should be observed in an eco-friendly way, party secretary Shrikant Sharma said, “The way we are becoming more eco-friendly, the way a campaign in this regard for Holi and Diwali festivals is going on in the country and the world… it is a matter of debate and there should be a debate over it. It will be good if the intelligentsia in the country discusses it.”
