DIWALI is a joyous festival, a festival that is given national prominence with a national holiday in Fiji. These were the words of the Local Government and Housing Minister Parveen Kumar during the Diwali celebration held at Narere Primary School, Nasinu yesterday.

Mr Kumar said this was a festival that united all Fijians. “Perhaps more importantly this message of unity and the promotion of the community has come to the floor and unite all Fijians.”

He said this was an important aspect of the celebrations this year.

“The message for today: as you all know that we are coming closer to the general election very soon after Diwali and I am confident that all of you will be enlightened by the message of this festival and choose good over evil.”
