Kolkata: Pakistan Singer Ghulam Ali’s Concert to happen in Eden’s Garden in Kolkata, instead of Park Circus Maidan, said State government officials on Wednesday. But even though the venue is shifted there won’t be any change in the date of the concert, confirmed officials. The Concert of Ghulam Ali will happen on 12th January.
The announcement of Controversial Pak singer Ghulam Ali’s Concert in Kolkata was announced on Tuesday. It was confirmed that he will perform at Park Circus Maidan on 12th January. But as Construction work is going on at a flyover near Park Circus, there could be hindrances of transport. Expecting the Ghazal Maestro’s concert will be a huge crowd puller, the decision has been taken by the state government to shift the venue of the concert. Eden Gardens has been selected as the apt venue for the historic big event by the Mamata Government. Given the size and position of the stadium, there wont be any traffic problems.
Ghulam Ali’s son, Amir Ali will also be heard at the event.
Earlier in 2015, when Shiv Sena forced the organisers to cancel the concert of the singer in Mumbai, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was among the first to extend an invitation to the singer.
“Ghulam Ali Ji’s concert can be held in Kolkata. We will make all arrangements,” Ms. Banerjee had said then.
