Taking cue from Yogi Adiyanath’s decision to cancel state holidays that fall on eminent personalities’ birthdays in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced that the state government will follow suit soon.
दिल्ली सरकार भी महापुरुषों के जन्म अथवा निर्वाण दिवस पर होने वाली छुट्टियां रदद् करेगी। इस बारे में मैंने मुख्य सचिव को निर्देश दिए हैं।1/3— Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) April 28, 2017
Sisodia’s tweet in Hindi read that the Delhi government too will cancel holidays that were given to mark the birth and death anniversaries of renowned persons.
Lauding the UP government’s step to do away with these holidays, Sisodia tweeted that the state government should always be ready to learn from their contemporaries.
He further added that the Centre’s support to the Delhi government’s community clinics and the movement to remove beacon lights from politicians’ cars has encouraged the government.
