Bihar Governor Phagu Chauhan and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday greeted the people of the state on the eve of the Independence Day, which coincides this year with the immensely popular festival of Rakshabandhan.
In their messages on the occasion, the Governor and the Chief Minister paid tributes to the freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives taking part in the struggle for Independence.
They urged the people of the state to be committed to national unity, a spirit of fraternity and social harmony.
In their messages for Rakshabandhan, when sisters tie Rakhis around the wrists of their brothers who take a vow to be by their side in trying times, the Governor and the Chief Minister underscored that besides celebrating sibling affection, the festival signified the honour and empowerment of women and hoped that the people of the state will keep the ideal in mind while taking part in the festivities.
