Khandu’s Greetings

Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended warm greetings to the people of Arunachal Pradesh particularly the Nyishi brethren on the auspicious occasion of Nyokum Yullo festival.

In his message, Khandu said,  “Greetings on occasion of Nyokum Yullo! Ours is a distinct state with several tribes and communities residing side by side for ages and maintaining their own unique indigenous culture and traditions. Despite our varied diversity, we as Arunachalees are united and take pride in our indigenous cultural heritage. This cultural mosaic has to be maintained, preserved and propagated at all costs while keeping intact our unity in diversity. I believe the Nyokum Yullo celebrations would prove a major catalyst towards achieving this goal”.

 “The festival would further the goal of achieving communal harmony and unity and would showcase the rich and varied traditional culture of the Nyishis, the largest community of the state” the message added further.  He prayed Almighty to bestow peace, happiness, good health, and prosperity to people of Aurnachal and rest of the world.
