Governor, CM extend Reh greetings

ITANAGAR, Jan 31: Governor Dr BD Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have extended greetings to the people of the state on the occasion of Reh festival.
In his message, the governor expressed hope that the festival will evoke blessings of the almighty and spread the message of love, peace and fraternity, far and wide.
The governor said that Reh, one of the most important festivals of the Idu Mishmi community reflects the vibrant and joyous traditions of the state.
“I would like to urge upon every member of the community and members of other tribes as well to participate actively in the event and strengthen the cohesive inter-fold bonding,” he said.
Extending his greetings, Pema said that the Idu Mishmis are “known for their creativity and popular for being the custodians of rich Mother Nature.”
He appreciated the Idus for conserving the nature and contributing immensely towards fighting global warming.
“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 Reh would prove a major catalyst towards achieving this goal,” the chief minister added.
