Siliguri, 16th February: Siliguri Municipality Corporation's Ward No. 24 Trinamool Yuva Congress organized a pilgrimage for the ward's senior citizens. The elderlies are being taken to the Bhramari Devi Temple situated in Bodaganj, Jalpaiguri. The State Tourism Minister Goutam Deb launched the journey.
The TMC Yuva Congress members stated that such initiatives are conducted by the body every year. Besides the temple, the elderly will also be taken to Bhorer Alo in Gajoldoba. They further stated that such an initiative has been taken considering that older adults often tend to lack companionship. The members also informed that various cultural programmes, sports events, and other facilities have also been organized to make the trip a success. The family members and the younger ones of the elderlies were also present during the launch.
