Chief minister Mamata Banerjee has appealed to people of West Bengal to abide by the court orders and Covid guidelines during the festival season.
The CM also said she would also request the state chief secretary to urge the Election Commission to make sure that “no disturbance is created” during the Puja days in the four poll-bound assembly segments.
She said, “Mask is compulsory, please use sanitisers. You can move at night (during the Puja days) but after adhering to the court orders and our Covid guidelines."
The statement comes after Calcutta High Court's orders of re-imposing the restrictions which was announced ahead of the festival last year. The High Court said that the interiors of Durga Puja pandals would remain closed for spectators for the second year in a row. CM might inaugurate the Pujas virtually like last year.
