Nazrul Park Unnayan Samiti’s Durga Puja theme this year “Mamata, You are the only Hope”

News Desk: To commemorate the huge success of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, Nazrul Park Unnayan Samiti of Baguiati decided to develop the idol of Goddess Durga on the likes of her. The name of their theme will be “Mamata, You are the only Hope” and it is an endeavor to showcase the mass beneficiary schemes of the chief minister to reach out to the marginalized sections of the society.

One of the organizers said “This is not political publicity. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the last ten years has worked tirelessly not only to change the image of the state but also to provide government benefits to those who have been out of the mainstream of the development of the state. This is social awareness and not political propaganda”

The pandal will portray the popular Lakshmi Bhandar scheme and the ten hands of Goddess Durga replicating the chief minister will be shown reaching out to the people will all her popular beneficiary schemes like Kanyashree to make the girls self-reliant, Yuvashree for the youth, Duare Sarkar, government at the doorsteps, Parai Parai Samadhan, solution of problems at the local levels and other beneficiary schemes.

A potter named Montu Lal said “The fiberglass-made idol will be prepared to keep in mind her facial impression. Like the chief minister, the idol will sport white saree and bathroom sleepers. In the background of the idol, there will be the logo of ‘Biswa Bangla’. And the ten hands of the idol will carry replicas of the ten most popular developmental schemes”

Another organizer said “Durga puja is symbolic where goddess Durga is the destroyer of the evil forces in the society and here our chief minister is the people’s true representative who has been working tirelessly to make our lives beautiful. On one hand, she is trying to bring investment for the state, improving the economy and on the other hand, she is distributing those benefits to the people. It seems that she, like goddess Durga, is working with ten hands and so she becomes the theme of our puja”

“In this pandemic situation when all the other states have been grappling in the dark, she was the lone chief minister who was not only successful in controlling the raging pandemic but like a mother gave food and shelter to all the people who came to the state. She didn’t discriminate between the people from our state and those from other states. This image of Mamata Banerjee should be an eye-opener for all the other states” he added.

He also said “The people of West Bengal are reaping the benefits of her developmental works. Now we want the people of the entire country to do the same. So, we have selected the theme of Goddess Durga with her 10 hands but in the form of the chief minister”
