Queen contestants at the Vodafone Coral Coast Carnival were praised for being good ambassadors and for being wonderful examples of young Fijian women.

They were commended by the Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport, Parveen Kumar during the crowning night last Saturday.

“As you will realise by now that these types of events are also about bringing to the fore development issues that Fijians must be aware of and for which we must all work together as a people to address,” Mr Kumar said.

“I know it has been a busy week and my hope is that despite the busy schedule and the experiences you have gained – in interviews, public speaking and not to mention the lifelong friendships, they have all been worthwhile.

“Particularly when you consider what you have done and given to the people of Nadroga/Navosa. Without you, there would be no carnival.”

Mr Kumar thanked the people of Nadroga and Navosa for turning up in big numbers to the carnival.

“It gives me great pleasure to be here and I thank the people of Nadroga and Navosa for the warm welcome. I have been informed that the carnival has been a successful one,” he said.

He also thanked Sigatoka Town Council and the carnival committee for reviving the annual event.

“I command the council for reviving this carnival after a lapse of six years. This carnival should be held on annual basis. My ministry will always support such carnival because they bring people of all races and backgrounds together in promoting unity,” he said.
