Kolkata: After the immense success of the Durga Puja immersion carnival, now another immersion carnival, or ‘bishorjon carnival’, has been conceived, for Kali Puja. This would be organised by Kolkata Police from next year, and it has the potential to become another success story.
During a recent meeting between Kolkata Police and Kali Puja organisers at Kala Mandir, this idea was agreed upon, as anything that is good and appreciated by people can take place again and again.
During the meeting, the Kolkata Police commissioner said that from this year, Kali Puja organisers can also avail the Aasaan app (like Durga Puja organisers) to get necessary clearances to organise Kali Puja.
The police requested organisers to spread awareness about the ‘Safe Drive, Save Life’ road safety awareness programme, for which they will provide hoardings.
The police also asked puja committees to take necessary steps so that pandal-hoppers do not face any trouble. With the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in full swing, many foreigners are also expected to visit Kali Puja pandals this year.
