Due to the prevailing pandemic situation, the gorgeous Jagadhatri Puja of Chandannagar didn’t had much in the last year. This year also there is a high possibility of the third wave of the pandemic during the puja season. Thus to cope up with scenario, the Govt. of WB took some important measure for the upcoming Jagadhatri Puja 2021 in the month of November.
With the support of Govt. of WB and encouragement of Mr. Indranil Sen (MLA, Chandannagar), Covid-19 Vaccination Drive is inaugurated on Wednesday (05-08-2021). The aim of this drive is to vaccinate the members of various Jagadhatri Puja Committee of Chandannagar and its nearby places. The drive will continue for next few days and in each day a fixed number of members from different puja committee will be vaccinated.
This vaccination drive is a step closer to celebrate the emphatic festival of Chandannagar with full protection and maintaining the Covid-19 guidelines set by the Government. It will mark the people safe who are directly or indirectly involved in the preparation of various events during the 4 days of the puja.
“After a long discussion, this vaccination drive is set up solely for the members of the Jagadhatri Puja Committee of Chandannagar and its nearby places” – Mr. Indranil Sen, MLA Chandannagar
“This vaccination Drive for the members of the Jagadhatri Puja is an essential and important step to mark the festival safe from possible third wave of the prevailing pandemic. We are really grateful to our MLA and WB Govt.” – Subojit Shaw, General Secretary, CCJPC.
