Diphu, Oct 1: Deputy Commissioner of Karbi Anglong held a discussion with Puja Committees of the district for discussing government's standard operational procedure to be followed during the forthcoming Durga Puja followed by Lakshmi Puja and Kali Puja at his conference hall.
Ng.C.D. Singha, Deputy Commissioner of Karbi Anglong, Pushpraj Sing Superintendent of Police and Puja Committee heads discussed about the government imposed procedures and continuance of the COVID protocols in community festivals. This time cultural programmes and street parties have been prohibited within close proximity of religious places, vaccination authority has planned to administer the first dose of COVID vaccine to every person before the festive season, particularly the committee members.
Government is restricting the size of the deity for trouble-free shipping with less human attachment. This time devotees will enjoy wide and specious settings; this has been insisted in the procedure to ensure community isolation. However restriction of children and unvaccinated aficionada inside Puja venue and adherence of 9 pm close up timing have in truth disappointed the young ones.
