A MESSAGE FORM THE PPP ON THE OCCASION OF PHAGWAH:
As we celebrate the joyous festival of Phagwah or Holi, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, especially our brothers and sisters of the Hindu community.
Phagwah has become a truly national festival, which Guyanese from all spheres of society look forward to. The diverse colours that are associated with the festival symbolize the commencement of the spring season and epitomize our nation’s rich diversity in a demonstration of a vibrant fusion.
Like all of our national festivals, the significance of Phagwah, through its pertinent messages, speaks to, among others, the triumph of good over evil. This message is pertinent at this juncture given the current challenges our country faces, where there is an attempt to subvert the will of the Guyanese people through electoral fraud.
Let’s be emboldened with the hope that, through resoluteness in the face of adversity and despondency, the messages of Phagwah translate to the inevitable prevailing of truth and fairness.
Our Party is mindful that in these current circumstances, major events to celebrate this colourful festival, are no longer scheduled. While it may defy expectations, it shows that in the quest for truth, sacrifices are unavoidable.
As Guyanese participate to mark the occasion, our Party once again extends best wishes and urges tolerance and respect in the celebrations. Shubh Holi to all!
People’s Progressive Party
