Twenty thousand students took part in the drawing competition at the Kanchenjunga Stadium in Siliguri today, sources report.
The drawing competition had been organized as a part of the ongoing Uttarbang Utsav. The Minister of the North Bengal Development Department, Rabindranath Ghosh, shared that a huge number of participants had arrived at the competition from Siliguri and its adjoining areas.
Due to the shortage of space in the ground, many students had to take a spot in the gallery of the stadium. Numerous students were also seen standing outside the stadium, who were later given a seat in the gallery.
Minister Rabindranath Ghosh further added that 17,000 certificates and medals have been distributed among the students.
