ITANAGAR, Aug 2: Governor Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd.) and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have extended their warm greetings to the people of the state on the joyous occasion of Raksha Bandhan.
Highlighting the social significance of the festival which reinforces the 'bond of protection' i.e. protection of sisters by brothers and in wider context, protection of womenfolk by men with brotherly feelings, the Governor expressed hope the tradition will spread love, amity and peace in society. In national perspective, Raksha Bandhan fortifies the bond among all communities and groups and helps in collective endeavour to work for the wellbeing of one another, he said. “May this festive occasion strengthen our joint resolve to defeat Covid-19 pandemic in our state,” his message read.  Conveying his greetings, the Chief Minister expressed hope that the essence of Raksha Bandhan which is to ensure safety, security and empowerment of womenfolk will percolate into the mindset of society. In his message he also observed that in modern days the perspective of the festival has evolved and does not confine to siblings of a family.

“The fact that today rakhi is tied between individuals of different families, castes and religions is a sign of our unity, commitment and responsibility towards the safety and security of others irrespective of caste or religion,”  CM said in his message. PRO Raj Bhavan, CMO
