Durga idols should be in the river by 8pm: Home minister

VHP has planned shastra puja in at least 300 locations across the state on Vijaya Dashami which will be celebrated on September 30.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday issued a strong message to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and other Hindutva organisations. Immersion processions can continue from October 2, it said. "Immersion will resume as usual from October two to four", she told reporters at the state secretariat. "Those having no inkling about Durga Puja and Kali Puja celebrations in Bengal are spreading all sorts of rumours", she said.

Track officials planned to honor Christopher by having his vehicle driven for a ceremonial lap followed by a moment of silence. The National Transportation Safety Board also will investigate.

This time also, fairs and stalls outside the mandaps will be disallowed, the minister said in a briefing after the meeting held with Puja arrangement committee leaders.

BJP leader Rahul Sinha said that people should first make immersion of such a party before the immersion of Durga idol, which is trying to do communal politics. "So, if the people from BJP, RSS and VHP believe they can ruin our peace, I'd ask them to not play with fire", she said. On September 4, the Trinamool Congress chief had directed the police to stop any attempt of Shastra Puja (weapon worship) on Vijaya Dashmi.

While Swansea's away form has been decent this season, Spurs are on fire and it's hard to imagine the Swans containing them. Aurier goes down inside the penalty area after appearing to be tripped by Ayew, and Mike Dean has a BIG decision to make.

Insisting that her government did not put any curb on celebration of Vijaya Dashami rituals, Banerjee said, "There is misinformation campaign by certain outfits that we are stopping Vijaya Dashami celebrations at puja pandals and households".

Keeping the state's law and order in mind, Banerjee had earlier said that immersion of Durga idols will not be permitted on 1 October because of Muharram processions scheduled for the same day.
