New Delhi, June 29 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday greeted the nation on the occasion of rath yatras being held across the country. He also greeted people on Ashadhi Bij, the Kutchi new year.

My warm greetings to the people on the occasion of the rath yatras that would be held across India today. We bow to Lord Jagannath on this auspicious day. Today once again He sets out on His chariot, giving blessings to the people, he tweeted.

In an another tweet, Modi said: We pray to Lord Jagannath for peace, prosperity and happiness in India. May Lord Jagannath bless us with good monsoon that will help farmers.

As Gujarat chief minister, I had the honour to perform the Pahind Vidhi ritual during the yatra in Ahmedabad. It is an experience I really cherished, he added.
