66th Anniversary of Indian Independence
As the Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs it gives me great pleasure to congratulate you today as you celebrate the 66th Anniversary of Indian Independence.
I would like to acknowledge the Federation of Indian Associations in the ACT as well as all the groups that it is made up of. FINACT is a great organiser for all the Indian groups in Canberra to connect and work together to achieve common goals.
The Indian Community in Canberra has done great work in displaying Indian culture in Canberra, and I have enjoyed the opportunity to interact with many members of the Indian Community.
A highlight of the Multicultural Festival is India in the City, and I look forward to seeing what is presented at next year’s festival.
Thank you all for your hard work and I wish everyone great joy as you celebrate this special occasion.
