Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will not be celebrating the Holi on Wednesday.
PMO sources said there was no particular reason for the Prime Minister's keeping away from the celebrations.
There was also no immediate word from Congress whether party chief Sonia Gandhi would be celebrating the festival.
Meanwhile, both the Prime Minister and Gandhi greeted the nation on the eve of Holi.
Gandhi hoped that the year ahead would bring happiness, peace and prosperity and noted that Holi was an occasion to renew friendship, to forgive and forget the conflict and bitterness of the past.
The Prime Minister said the festival of colours provides an opportunity to forge new bonds and fellow-feeling among the citizens.
