Gogoi visits puja mandap in Guwahati


The entire Assam is in the grip of Durga Puja festivities. Maha Navami puja is being observed a day before the immersion of the idols. People of all walks of life young and old alike are lined up in the puja mandaps to offer Maha Navami puja from early in the morning. Prominent political leaders are also seen offering puja seeking divine help. Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday visited a puja pandal in Ganeshguri a day after he wrapped up a foreign tour.


Talking to reporters, Gogoi hoped that the puja will help the state end the bloody chapter and that he would try to rein the in soaring price line to give the people some sort of respite. Replying to a question on whether he believes in animal sacrifice, the chief minister made it clear that he personally has no faith on animal sacrifice.
