“Our only wish is that there should be love, brotherhood, harmony and harmony in the society, we all should keep fighting against injustice, ignorance and discrimination and the lamp of happy hopes should keep burning,” the Congress chief added.

Taking to social media, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said, “Let the darkness of lies, injustice and hatred disappear. May our India be illuminated with truth, justice and love.”

“Poverty dims the celebration when people have to carry oil for lamps. We hope for a festival that lights up not just the riverbank but also the homes of the poor,” said Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav. Video of children taking oil from “diyas” during Deepotsav in Ayodhya was shared by Yadav, criticising the extravaganza.

“Let this Diwali be a joyful occasion for celebrating the unity and harmony that form the cornerstone of our society,” read senior CPI(M) leader and Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan’s Diwali wishes.

Veteran Dalit leader and VBA chief Prakash Ambedkar wrote on X: “Eknath Shinde and BJP-led government’s anti-people policies and rising high prices have dampened the festive spirit of Diwali and has made life extremely difficult for the people of Maharashtra, particularly farmers, students, contractual employees and women. The anti-people government of Eknath Shinde and BJP have together pushed Maharashtra into darkness this Diwali.”
