In his message, the Prime Minister said, "Sankranti indicates the beginning of a traditionally auspicious period of the year. Lohri and Pongal are harvest festivals, and an occasion to celebrate the contribution of our farmers and our traditional ethos, culture and economy. All these festivals mark a new beginning."
"May these festivals bring prosperity and joy to all", Singh said.
