Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday greeted the people of the state to mark dol utsab and appealed to the people to maintain peace and harmony during holi.

Mamata Banerjee tweeted that ‘ওরে ভাই, ফাগুন লেগেছে বনে বনে… সকলকে জানাই দোল পূর্ণিমার শুভেচ্ছা। বসন্তোৎসবের রঙে রঙিন হয়ে উঠুক আজকের দিন। কিন্তু আপনার আনন্দ যেন অন্যের বেদনার কারণ না হয়ে ওঠে।’

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday asked the police to remain alert during Holi and Ram Navami and not allow anyone to create trouble. Addressing an administrative meeting at Barasat in North 24 Parganas, she said: “Thursday is Dol Jatra and Friday is Holi. Muslims also offer prayers on Friday. I will ask my district police administration to remain alert. Some trouble-mongers will use this occasion to create unrest. Do not let anyone create trouble… Ram Navami is also coming. We are not against any religion. We love all religions, but we have to see that such celebrations do not cause trouble.”

Describing the districts bordering Bangladesh as “sensitive”, Mamata asked officials concerned to monitor the situation to stop infiltration. “North 24 Parganas is a sensitive district. A large part of this district shares border with Bangladesh. Keep vigil along areas like Basirhat and Bongaon so that no one can illegally enter the country and create problems,” Mamata said.
