According to the political parties this may be an innovative initiative by the Grassroot to prevent the emergence of the Saffron brigade in Bengal.

As Bengalis celebrate Durgapujo every year here together, so I have arranged such a festival for the non-Bengalis residents too, its been three years we are celebrating this festival.”
