The President of India, Ram Nath Kovind in his message on the eve of Janmashtami has said:-
“On the joyous occasion of Janmashtami, I convey greetings and best wishes to all my fellow citizens in India and abroad.
The life and teachings of Lord Krishna have a universal message- Nishkam Karma. Lord Krishna in his message has preached duty without thought of reward. May this festival inspire us to follow the path of virtue and righteousness in thought, word and deed”.
