Greetings on the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan. Here are glimpses from the celebration earlier today.
Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Indians. Jai Hind! 🇮🇳 ⠀ Here are some glimpses from the celebrations in Delhi this morning.
Welcomed a very special person...Dinkarbhai Desai, who has taken part in our freedom struggle. India will always be grateful to our freedom fighters for their courage and determination that led to India’s independence.
During the Kargil War in 1999, I had the opportunity to go to Kargil and show solidarity with our brave soldiers. ⠀ This was the time when I was working for my Party in J&K as well as Himachal Pradesh. ⠀ The visit to Kargil and interactions with soldiers are unforgettable.
A very special friend came to meet me in Parliament today.
Special moments that will be etched in the annals of our glorious history! ⠀ The launch of #Chandrayaan2 illustrates the prowess of our scientists and the determination of 130 crore Indians to scale new frontiers of science. ⠀ Every Indian is immensely proud today!
#Varanasi’s Virtual Experiential Museum brings to life everything that is special about Kashi- the Ghats, strong link with music, literature, art and spirituality. Glad that I got the opportunity to spend time at the Museum today. Next time you are in Kashi you must visit too!
Had excellent meetings at the G-20 Summit in Osaka. Met various world leaders and discussed a wide range of issues. Together, we will build a better planet.
Yoga- a passport to health assurance and wellness. Have you made Yoga a part of your routine? If not, what are you waiting for. Here are a few photos from the Yoga Day programme in #Ranchi, #Jharkhand.
Wonderful evening with MP colleagues over dinner. ⠀ Cutting across party lines, we had great conversations through the programme.
While going through the letters penned by my fellow citizens, I came across this adorable photo album sent by young Vanisha. ⠀ Thank you Vanisha! Such gestures are extremely humbling and I thought I must share this feeling of happiness with you all.
Across all continents, the #YogaDay2019 celebrations have begun with immense fervour. I urge you all to join the Yoga Day programmes in your respective nations and enrich the Yoga programmes with your participation.
Extremely grateful to President Jeenbekov for presenting me a Kalpak, the traditional Kyrgyz hat, a Chapan, a traditional coat from Kyrgyzstan and a Samovar, a container used to heat or boil water. I will cherish these, which are closely associated with the culture of Kyrgyzstan 🇰🇬.
A ceremonial welcome in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan 🇰🇬.
Excellent meetings with President Putin of #Russia and President Xi Jinping of #China on the sidelines of the SCO Summit in Bishkek.
From Tirumala. Prayed to Bhagwan Sri Venkateswara for the well-being of the people of India.
Started the Sri Lanka visit by paying my respect at one of the sites of the horrific Easter Sunday Attack, St. Anthony's Shrine, Kochchikade. ⠀ My heart goes out to the families of the victims and the injured.
The Guruvayur Temple is divine and magnificent. Prayed at this iconic Temple for the progress and prosperity of India.
Paying homage to Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel at the Prime Minister’s Office in South Block.
First Cabinet meeting. This is a team that will work hard to deliver. In the first meeting itself, we took many decisions for the welfare of farmers, traders and youngsters.
Spent time with my Mother and sought her blessings.
Our only loyalty is to the Constitution and the values enshrined in it.
Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India.
Humbled by the affection. Thank you!
Thank you India!

Har Har Mahadev! Prayed at Kedarnath.
Clicks during the campaign...took a few photographs of serene Himachal Pradesh during the rally in Mandi today.
This young friend joined our rally at Valmiki Nagar in #Bihar. Met him after the rally and had a delightful interaction. I am happy several youngsters are attending our rallies and supporting us.
India stands with #Odisha. I visited Odisha today and took part in an extensive review meeting to take stock of the damage due to Cyclone Fani and the rehabilitation work. Assured all possible help to the Odisha Government in ensuring normalcy. Also urged Central Government departments to ensure damaged roads and power lines are repaired and farmers get timely crop insurance.
Met this young friend in #Bikaner. He is a superb singer and he also sung a few lines yesterday. Happy to have met him.
Colours of the campaign! I’m travelling all over India and it’s clear India wants NDA yet again.
What struck me about @iamsunnydeol is his humility and deep passion for a better India. We both agree- हिन्दुस्तान जिंदाबाद था, है, और रहेगा!
Filed my nomination for #Varanasi. Happy that valued NDA allies, Cabinet colleagues, Party leaders and lakhs of Karyakartas have come to show support.
On the banks of the Ganga, prayed for India’s peace and prosperity. Glimpses from the magnificent Ganga Aarti in Kashi.

On the auspicious occasion of Mahashivratri, prayed at the Dholeshwar Mahadev Temple in Gandhinagar. Har Har Mahadev!
Humbled to dedicate to the nation the #NationalWarMemorial. Jai Hind! 🇮🇳
Today is a historic day for #India! Our country will now be home to a #NationalWarMemorial. India pays tributes to all those greats who sacrificed their lives for the nation. Here are some pictures of the Memorial, which will be dedicated to the nation today and the surrounding India Gate area.
Memorable moments at the Holy #Kumbh.
Priceless moments with my wonderful young friends in #Varanasi. Their energy is awe inspiring! Have a look...
Memorable moments with a beneficiary of Ayushman Bharat in rural #Maharashtra. I feel very happy when I see the Government’s flagship healthcare programme positively touching so many lives!
We salute you, brave sons of Mother India. You lived for the nation and served the country with unparalleled valour. We stand in solidarity with the families of those martyred in Pulwama.
Special moments from Vrindavan. Served the 3 billionth meal of the Akshaya Patra foundation. Don’t you think all those who are working towards eradicating hunger are doing an extraordinary service to humanity?
A few days back, I had visited #Dandi in Gujarat. This is the same place from where Bapu challenged our colonial rulers. There’s a wonderful new museum there, as a tribute to the great Satyagrahis. Plan your next trip to Dandi, along the pristine shores, in remembrance of the great people who made India free.
A memorable day in Jammu and Kashmir. Visited Leh, Jammu and Srinagar. Several development works were launched. The state’s scenic beauty is enchanting!
