The Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank released a video tweet wishing students, parents, and academicians a happy Diwali. In his season greetings, the minister not only wished students but also asked them to have a green and safe Diwali. Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Local for Vocal slogan”, Pokhriyal asked students to buy from the local shops nearby.

“Festival of Diwali is a symbol of the triumph of truth over lies and good over evil. On this occasion let’s pledge to eliminate whatever mistakes we have had in past,” said Pokhriyal. Asking people celebrating to buy locally he said, “if we buy from a small local venture it would not only give them respect but fill you with pride.”
