KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has extended 'Pongal' (harvest festival) greetings to Malaysian Indians.
He also called on the Indian community to continue to work together in the spirit of 'nambikei' (trust) to achieve excellence for the country and prosperity for the people.
"I wish all Malaysian Indians 'Pongal Vaalthukal' on the occasion of the harvest festival celebrated this year.
"In this new beginning, let us continue to work together with 'nambikei' towards many more bountiful harvests for all in the years to come," he said in his latest Facebook post in conjunction with the Pongal celebration on Tuesday.
Pongal denotes the start of the month of "Thai" in the Indian calendar, and is welcomed with sweet rice for family and friends, and the giving of thanks for an abundant harvest.
