CM to inaugurate Durga Puja of Hatibagan Sarbojonin

Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will inaugurate the Durga Puja of Hatibagan Sarbojonin on September 27. This is the first time that Banerjee will inaugurate the Puja, which will celebrate its 85th anniversary this year.

Atin Ghosh, Deputy Mayor and chairman of the Puja committee, said a technology will be used, thanks to which any visitor offering pranam to Goddess Durga will be photographed by a hidden camera in the idol.

"We have made this special arrangement as it has been seen that majority of the people who visit the pandals do not offer pranam to Ma Durga. They see the lights and the decoration and go to visit the next pandal. We want to put an end to this practice. Those coming to the pandal should offer their pranam to Ma Durga," he said.

The organisers of the Puja committee are working with renewed enthusiasm after the news that Banerjee will inaugurate the Puja reached the locality. A huge mansion, which was used as the house of a zamindar, is being built.

It may be mentioned that raising the slogan 'Religion is personal and celebration is for all,' Banerjee has given Rs 25,000 to the clubs organising Durga puja.
