“While we gather around the Christmas tree with friends and family let us give a thought and pray for those who are alone in this world. This Christmas, let us bring joy to others with an act of kindness,” Khandu said in his message to the people. “As for us in the government, this is the time to reiterate our devotion and dedication to the welfare of our people. We have to continuously move on towards prosperity and that will be achieved only when every person, every family, every community and every religion of our state prosper,” he said.
“Peace and development go hand in hand. In fact, both these entities are the two sides of a coin. Without one, the other will never be a reality. Therefore, this Christmas, it is my fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eterl, and that every path may lead to peace. And we all move ahead, hand-in-hand without a hitch, towards development and a better world,” the chief minister added.
