Prime Minister on Sunday asked Indians to treat the upcoming Commonwealth Games as a "national festival" and said it will be a "proud moment for the whole country".

"The Commonwealth Games will start in Delhi after about one and a half months. This will be a proud moment for the whole country and especially for Delhi," he said.

"I am convinced that all our countrymen will treat the Games as a national festival and will leave no stone unturned to make them a success. The successful organization of Commonwealth Games would be another signal to the world that India is rapidly marching ahead with confidence," he added.

The mega event is slated for Oct 3-14.
