Jammu, December 24 (KNO) : Governor Satya Pal Malik has extended warm greetings to the people on the auspicious occasion of Christmas. In a message, Governor said that over the past centuries the teachings of Jesus Christ, the apostle of peace, compassion and brotherhood, have guided human beings on the path of righteousness. He observed that the message of Lord Christ is perhaps more relevant today than ever before, when the world is faced with increasing hatred, intolerance and violence. Governor expressed hope that the celebration of this joyous occasion would strengthen the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood, amity, and re-invigorate the secular and pluralistic traditions for which Jammu and Kashmir was known in the centuries gone by. He wished the people a bright and merry Christmas and prayed for peace, progress andprosperity in the State. Meanwhile, Governor Malik in his message on the Good Governance Day, which is observed every year on 25th December, has conveyed that it should be the Government’s continuing endeavour to provide prompt, efficient, transparent and totally accountable administration for the betterment and welfare of the common citizen.
