Siliguri, 28th September: Siliguri puja organizers are highly concerned due to lack of funds.
On Tuesday, a discussion was held with the city’s Durgapuja committees on behalf of Siliguri Municipal Corporation, during which the puja organizers discussed multiple issues being faced by them.
Arup Majumder, an official of Mahananda Sporting Club, said, “When we contacted various associations for Puja Chanda, they refused to pay the amount. The money provided by the state government is not enough for organizing puja.”
After hearing about the problem, SMC administrator Goutam Deb said that a meeting will be held with the associations in a few days. They will be asked to provide help as per their capabilities.
On the other hand, SMC informed that there are plans to organize fireworks shows and cultural programmes during idol immersion.
