A bill has been introduced to declare Diwali as a holiday in the US.


Washington: Diwali, the festival of lights celebrated in India, is being celebrated all over the world. The biggest reason for this is the Indians living abroad. US MP Grace Meng has introduced a bill declaring Diwali holiday in the US Congress. Grace gave information about this by tweeting. Grace Meng held a press conference and said that billions of people around the world celebrate the festival of Diwali. The day is extremely important to many families and communities in different parts of the US, including New York. The excitement and enthusiasm about this festival in America shows that this country respects different cultures.

According to a report, more than 40 lakh citizens of America celebrate the festival of lights. Now a bill has been introduced in the US Parliament regarding its celebration. Diwali could become the 12th government-recognized holiday in the US after the President signs it if the bill gets proper support in Parliament.

Significantly, recently a bill was passed in the Senate of the State of Pennsylvania to declare a holiday on Diwali. Grace Meng has appealed to all MPs to support the bill introduced in Parliament. Along with this, he thanked all the government employees who supported the bill.
