L-G Baijal offers floral Chaadar at Dargah

NEW DELHI: Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal on Thursday offered floral Chaadar at the Dargah of Khwaja Bakhtiar Kaaki at Mehrauli. This festival is known for communal harmony. It also took a step towards national integration by weaving the States of India into the garland of flowers of "Phool Waalon Ki Sair," Baijal said.

The Delhi government offices were closed for a half-day on Thursday on account of "Phool Waalon Ki Sair" festival celebration. "Phool Waalon Ki Sair" is a seven-day festival which started on Monday during which Hindus and Muslims together offer a 'floral chaadar' and 'pankha' at the Dargah of Khwaja Bakhtiar 'Kaaki' in Mehrauli.

A floral pankha and chhatra (canopy) is offered at the ancient temple of Devi Yogmaya, also in Mehrauli. "The Delhi Government has declared a half-day holiday On November after 2 pm in all government offices, autonomous bodies and public sector undertakings under the Delhi Government on account of Phool Waalon Ki Sair," said a Delhi government official. During the celebration, processions have been taken out in different parts of the city.
