Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 30 August celebrated Raksha Bandhan with school girls in Delhi. School girls tied Rakhi to Prime Minister in Delhi, as they celebrated the festival of Raksha Bandhan with him. The school children greeted the Prime Minister with smiles as he entered the classroom and tied the sacred thread to him.
