President Ram Nath Kovind has extended his wishes to the people on the eve of Raksha Bandhan.

In his message he said:

On the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to all my fellow citizens.

Rakhi is the sacred thread of love, affection and trust that sisters tie on the wrists of their brothers. This is a unique festival that strengthens our will to protect the interests of women and work for their well-being.

On this day, let us all take a pledge to stand for the honour and dignity of women so that they can contribute their best for the nation and society”.
