Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday rubbished the Narendra Modi government`s decision to observe Dec 25 as `Good governance day`, saying "every day is good governance day".

"If someone says Bada Din (Christmas) is Good Governance Day, I disagree. Every day is Good Governance Day," Banerjee said during a Christmas function at the St. Xavier`s College here.

While Christians celebrate their biggest festival Christmas Dec 25, the Modi government has decided to call it `good governance day` in observance of the birthday of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

"This is not right. When I am in the chair, I cannot discriminate on the basis of religion, caste or creed. Our unity is our strength," she said.
