Minister for Local Government, Housing and Environment, Parveen Kumar says the Digicel Bula Festival promotes unity.

He made the statement while crowning the 2015 Bula Festival queens at Prince Charles Park in Nadi last Saturday night.

“This is as much a promotion of unity as it is for your personal development and you all are winners,” he said.

“I congratulate the organisers on the initiative that also provides an excellent platform for promoting important national issues like coming together to build a stronger and united Fiji for all Fijians.

“The only people who can put our beloved nation first are those who call it home,” Mr Kumar said.

Mr Kumar congratulated all stakeholders on the success of the Bula Festival thanked the people of Nadi for attending the week-long event.

Nadi will also for the first time host the Fiji Pageant from September 17 – 24, this year.

Mr Kumar said, “The people of Nadi should be proud that you will witness the very first Fiji Pageant competition.

“That is to choose who will be Miss Fiji and I am sure you are all excited in anticipating who will represent all of us.”

Meanwhile Miss TKG Handicraft & Media Wave Seasea Misiki was crowned the Digicel Bula Queen 2015 and Charity Queen 2015 on the crowning night.
