Didi inaugurates several Durga Puja pandals in Kolkata

West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee travelled far and wide, mapping the length and breadth of Kolkata, inaugurating Durga Puja pandals across the City of Joy.

Soaking herself in the festive spirit, she travelled from the eastern fringes to the southern corners, covering Baghbazar to Santoshpur, Kasba to New Alipore. Everywhere she went, she mingled with the crowd, greeted everyone and chanted the Durgastotram.

The Bengal Chief Minister, who is also a painter, performed the Chakkhudan of the Durga idol at Chetla Agrani Club on the auspicious occasion of Mahalaya, at the request of the artist Mr Sanatan Dinda.

The Chief Minister has also designed the cover of the Puja edition of the party mouthpiece Jago Bangla.
