As India observes “Good Governance Day,” for the seventh year on Friday, an annual celebration of the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on December 25th, Manipur Chief Minister, N Biren Singh urged government officials to focus on the state’s development.
The chief minister took to twitter and said “As we celebrate “Good Governance Day,” observing the birth anniversary of former PM Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji, I urge all Government officials to focus on the State’s overall development. Let’s continue to make Manipur a flourishing State.”
Good Governance Day was declared and established in 2014 to honour the tenth Prime Minister of India, Atal Bihari Vajpayee who served three terms as the Prime Minister of India. Following his Bharat Ratna award in 2014, India’s highest civilian award, Modi’s government announced the commemoration of Good Governance Day annually on December 25th, which received criticism for setting the same date with Christmas celebration especially in Christian majority states of India. The main opposition was led by Indian National Congress.
Good Governance Day is a compulsory working day.
