Civic plea before Puja

Members of Jamshedpur Durga Puja Kendriya Samiti on Wednesday held a meeting with Dhalbhum sub-divisional officer (SDO) Subodh Kumar to discuss the logistics of the forthcoming Durga Puja celebrations in the steel city.

Since the pandals of most big-budget Pujas — Jamshedpur will have 280 community Pujas this year — are being built, the samiti asked the SDO to ensure slag was dumped near the areas to even out nearby grounds. As monsoon has also left its mark on roads, the samiti asked repairs to begin at the earliest.

The meeting of the district administration’s central peace committee — in which representatives of Puja committees and minority religions sit with the deputy commissioner, senior superintendent of police, sub-divisional officer, ADM (law and order), among others — will convene around September 18-19.

This meeting stresses on communal harmony.

“We were here to meet the SDO today as the major problems that we face during the Puja needs to be sorted out. Dumping of slag and road repairs are a priority as we don’t want revellers to face problems,” said Rambabu Singh, samiti general secretary.

The other issue, Singh said, was that Puja committees had not received their licences even after applying last year.

“We help the samiti as far as possible. I hope some work is over before the peace committee meeting,” said the SDO.
