Siliguri, 30th March: In view of the coronavirus outbreak, a nation-wide lockdown has been declared to contain the spread of the virus. In this situation, several people have decided to offer ‘Chhath Puja’ in their respective houses.
As per the report, many people in Siliguri have set up small ghats on the terraces and lawns of their residence and are performing Chhath Puja.
