Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to celebrate Diwali 2017 with troops of the Indian Army and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) on the China border in Uttarakhand on Thursday.

The PM today took to Twitter and extended Diwali greetings to the countrymen. According to reports, the PM may pay a visit to the Kedarnath shrine in Uttarakhand on October 20 - his second visit in less than five months.

The PM is scheduled to visit the holy shrine a day after Diwali where he will inaugurate a number of projects including the temple protection wall which has been built to prevent 2013-like floods from hitting the temple devoted to Lord Shiva, media reports quoting government sources as saying.

However, there is no official confirmation yet regarding the PM's Kedarnath visit.
