State BJP vice-president Pratap Banerjee said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address will be telecast live in EZCC and 10 other puja pandals of the state. The names of these 10 pandals are yet to be finalized. ”
The party will also put up big screens in many parts of the state for broadcasting the Prime Minister’s address. The EZCC will host various cultural events next week. Odissi Dancer Dona, the wife of BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Odissi Dancer Dona and her team will showcase their art at the opening ceremony.
Earlier, state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh (Bengal BJP Chief Dileep Ghosh) had said that the party is not directly involved in organizing Durga Puja anywhere. This gave rise to speculation that there was a disagreement within the party. Ghosh was confirmed to be infected with the Coronavirus on Friday and is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in the city.
The state assembly elections are to be held in April-May next year. The ruling Trinamool Congress and the opposition BJP want to leave no stone unturned to woo voters to strengthen their vote bank.
