Church, Christian leaders in northeast oppose 'Good Governance Day' on Dec 25

New Delhi/Kohima, Dec 18 (UNI) Even as the festivity spirit gets underway in the Christian stronghold northeastern states, a number of local church bodies and leaders have aired their strong reservation against the observance of 'Good Governance Day' on December 25, the solemn Christmas Day.
Politicians from across the region, including from states like Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh -- where BJP shares power -- have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi or issued statements, opposing the decision to designate the day Christmas is celebrated worldwide as the Good Governance Day.
"The very idea to put December 25 considered sacred for billions of Christians in bracket with the day for any other official function was erroneous. It has hurt the sentiments of Christians certainly," Independent MLA in Nagaland, Thomas Ngullie, told UNI.
