Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday came out strongly against the announcement by the central government to observe 'Good Governance Day' on Christmas saying "every day is good governance day".
"If someone says burra din (Christmas) is Good Governance Day,I disagree. Every day is Good Governance Day", Banerjee said speaking at a Christmas-eve programme at St Xavier's College here.
"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.
December 25, birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Madan Mohan Malaviya, is being observed as Good Governance day by NDA government.
