The Durga Pratima was unveiled by Shah with a remote control device amid chanting of Jai Shree Ram from the assembled people at the site.

Shah also offered flowers at the altar of the Goddesses and with a Panchca Pradip.

West Bengal BJP president Sukanta Majumdar, Suvendu Adhikari, union minister Nitish Pramanik amogh others were present at the celebration.

Shah said he has come from Gujarat after being in Chhattisgarh to have a blessing from Goddess Durga, which is the biggest festival of Bengal.

The community puja at the Santosh Mitra Square Puja Committee is one of the most attractive venues in this metropolis for the festival revellers for many decades for its unique theme.

BJP MLA Sajal Ghosh is one of the chief patrons of the Santosh Mitra Square Samity community puja.
