Holi was being celebrated with fervour in Nagaland. Zeliang in his greetings hoped that the festival of colours will renew the feeling of togetherness and fulfil the hopes and aspirations of the people of the state and bring in happiness, peace, and prosperity for all.
Nagaland PCC president K Therie said the festival of colours is a good opportunity to renew and strengthen the social bonds of brotherhood and mutual respect between communities.
It is also a good time to spread the message of peace, joy and love across society and to celebrate unity in diversity.
