On the first day of the festival of faith, millions of pilgrims today gave tribute to the setting sun on the different ghats of the Mahananda river. A large number of devotees worshiped the Sun in all the ghats including Santoshinagar, Ganganagar and Lal Mohan Molik Niranjan Ghats of the city.
On this occasion, adequate security arrangements were made by the police to prevent any untoward incident. Meanwhile, Minister Gautam Dev and city mayor Ashok Bhattacharya also visited various ghats and talked to the officials of the Puja Committees.
The people will give their offerings to the rising sun tomorrow morning and complete their Chhath fast.
