On the foundation day of Goa on 30th May, 2024, I extend my warm greetings to the people of Goa.

    It was in 1987 on this day that Goa transformed from a Union Territory to a State and became the 25th State of the Union of India. Goa has always been a beacon of diversity and unity, where people from various backgrounds live in harmony, contributing to the State’s unique identity and progressive spirit. This day marks the spirit, rich culture and heritage of Goa. May this Foundation Day inspire unity, prosperity, and perpetual growth for all.

   On this occasion, I wish happiness and continued strides towards prosperity to the people of Goa residing in Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
