The Kamrup(metro) district administration has restricted the movement of vehicles in some selected roads after 2 in the afternoon. Devotees are thronging before the idols for puja offering from early in the morning. A section of puja pendals dazzles with electrical decoration pulling huge crowds especially at nights.
