Gujarat is celebrating the festival of Diwali and the festival of elections under a democracy. Both these festivals are being celebrated with fervour and enthusiasm," said Modi.

"The people have made this resolution to never allow darkness to prevail in the state, they have maintained this resolution for the last 11 years and will continue to shine for the next five years," he added.
