Minister for Health and Family Welfare, U T Khader wished the gathering on the occasion. Recalling his younger days, Khader said that everyone, irrespective of religion, would have a lot of fun during this festival. We were takin part in decorating the streets with buntings. In earlier days people were living in harmony and celebrating all the feasts with unity. Now the same zeal is not there among people, some anti social elements are trying to destroy peace in the society.
