रक्षाबंधन का पर्व अपने परिवार में खुशियां बढ़ाने का दिन होता है। गैस की कीमतों में कटौती होने से मेरे परिवार की बहनों की सहूलियत बढ़ेगी और उनका जीवन और आसान होगा। मेरी हर बहन खुश रहे, स्वस्थ रहे, सुखी रहे, ईश्वर से यही कामना है। https://t.co/RwM1a1GIKd— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) August 29, 2023
Taking to X (formerly Twitter), he stated: “The festival of Raksha Bandhan brings happiness to our families. The reduction in gas prices will increase the comfort of my sisters and make their life easier. May every sister of mine be happy and healthy, this is my prayer to God.”
