NSW Opposition Leader John Robertson has welcomed the launch of this year’s Parramasala festival – the festival celebrating South Asian culture in Western Sydney now in its fifth year.

Robertson attended the launch event at Harris Park on August 27.

“I’m proud that Parramasala, started by Labor just five years ago, has grown to become one of our city’s best-loved community events,”  Robertson said.

“It’s wonderful to see so much colour and life each year in Parramatta – right in the heart of Western Sydney – exemplifying the best of what our multicultural state has to offer”.

“The dazzling array of food, costumes, music and dance that we see over the Parramasala weekend reflects the diversity of Australian society and is a true asset to the social calendar in Sydney”, he said.

“The success of Parramasala is evidence that the South Asian community’s economic, social, cultural and educational contribution is truly valued by all in our great state”.

“I’m proud of the contribution of the Indian and South Asian community to our society and this event is an opportunity for the broader community to enjoy everything they have to offer.

“I look forward to a fantastic event, back for another year this October.”
