BJP looks to enter Durga Puja committees to boost ‘Bengali’ image

Bolstered by its Lok Sabha success, BJP now wants to be part of Durga Puja in big way throughout Bengal. Party leaders are approaching Durga Puja organisers to be a part of the committees, in a bid to steal the show from Trinamool Congress. Leaders have also expressed keenness to get sponsors and top national leaders for inauguration. The move is also aimed to counter Trinamool Congress’ ‘Bengali’ image push.
Durga Puja is scheduled to be held from October 4, and presently organising committees are being formed in various communities and club-based festivities.
While Left leaders did not associate themselves with the organising committees, TMC leaders were at the helm of major Durga Pujas in Kolkata and the districts even before 2011. Post-2011, majority of Durga Puja committees had TMC leaders as its patron or president. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself had inaugurated dozens of Durga Pujas in Kolkata, most of which had TMC leaders in the organising committees. The Bengal government also organises a Durga Puja carnival on Red Road after the festival is over.
