A Railway Station For Durga In Darrang’s Kharupetia

The puja pandal will have a large stadium to send across the 'long-standing demand' message to the administration


As everyone is gearing up for Durga Puja, the committees have adopted different themes to attract revellers to their respective pandals.

Amidst this race of erecting the best Durga puja pandal, a puja committee in Kharupetia in Darrang district has come up with the idea of protesting against the government’s deaf ears towards the people’s demand of putting the district in the railway map.

The puja committee, Tiger Club is going to showcase a railway station with tracks and trains to make the railway department aware that communication is important for Kharupetia to grow and prosper.

The puja pandal will also have a large stadium to send across the message to the administration that it has been demanding for a community stadium for the people. The theme will also highlight the fact that the district administration hasn’t been paying heed to the demands of the people to start a water supply project in the town.

It may be mentioned that the Tiger Club will be celebrating its silver jubilee this year and the pandal will display all the things that a railway station has. There will be attractions for children too like slides and many more.
