“We are indeed overwhelmed with joy over this gesture and shall continue to celebrate. There was a spontanous celebration, even as members of the State Council did celebrate as soon as the bus arrived the newly commissioned Press Centre.
“Everything is just happening spontaneously. Just on Friday 28th October, 2022, the Governor inaugurated a new Secretariat for the union; completed and tastefully furnished by his administration.
