Kolkata: The date Vijaya Dashami means the burial of one idol after another in the ghats of the Ganges. Several ghats have been identified for this by the Kolkata Corporation and the Kolkata Police. Necessary steps have been taken by the corporation in those designated ghats. In order to ensure that the law is not violated or endangered in any way, care has been taken.
The corporation has hired a crane to carry the idol and several workers to be dumped at Babughat. Arrangements have also been made to clean the ghats with water through hose pipes so that they do not get dirty in any way. According to the officials of the corporation, as per the order of the Hon’ble High Court, the Ganges is being monitored to prevent any spread of pollution. He arranged for a crane to lift the statue as it fell into the river. He further said that since industrial dyes are used in the construction of idols, they have made arrangements to remove the idols from the water as soon as possible.
