Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday greeted people on the first day of Navratri 2020 and wished for happiness, peace and prosperity in their lives. He said in a tweet to be safe, healthy and prosperous by the grace of Goddess. Prime Minister Modi said, "Salute to mother Shailputri on the first day of Navratri. By his grace our house remains safe, healthy and prosperous. May her blessings empower us to bring positive changes in the lives of the poor and the underprivileged".

At the same time, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah also extended heartfelt greetings to the countrymen of the Sharadiya Navratri, praying to Goddess Bhagwati to maintain her kindness and blessings on all. Amit Shah tweeted, "Navratri' is a symbol of tenacity, sadhana and Shakti worship. Heartfelt greetings to all the countrymen of the mahaparva of Navratri. May Maa Bhagwati shower her grace and blessings on all. Jai Mata Di".

From today, Navratri has started. Goddess Mother is being worshiped in temples across the country since morning. Devotees are also taking precautions in view of the Coronavirus crisis. Amidst strict adherence to Covid-19 related rules, the annual "Navratri Brahmotsavam" of Lord Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala began on Friday.

During the Navratri festival, Joint Quick Response Teams (QRT) have been deployed for the protection of the devotees who go to the cave of Mata Vaishno Devi, located in Jammu and Kashmir, in which police and Central Reserve Police Force are also included.
