Hindu Seva Samiti (HSS) has issued a list of appeals to Puja Committees, in relation to the upcoming Durga Puja celebrations, as per guidelines issued by the office of the Commissioner of Police and Nagaland Pollution Control Board.

A press release from the HSS president asked all puja pandals to ensure cleanliness around pandals in accordance with “Swach Bharat Abhiyan”.

HSS also asked that posters of the Measles & Rubella Vaccination Campaign be put up at the puja pandals for awareness, which are available at the CMO’s office. It stated that the directive also instructed celebrators to maintain public peace & tranquillity and also further instructed Puja Pandals to use sound systems in a controlled manner to avoid disturbances.

Further, officer bearers of all Puja Committees have been directed to be present in their respective Puja pandals in maximum numbers and maintain law & order to avoid any untoward incidents during the holy festival. In view of the administration’s caution regarding anti social activities and treat perception, all the office bearers of Puja Pandals, volunteers and devotees have been directed to keep close vigil on any unclaimed articles, vehicles, etc., and take the help of Police when required immediately. It asked that one of the committee member’s contact number be given to the nearest police station for coordination. On October 19, all the Puja Pandal’s vehicles have been requested to line up with the idols at Clock Tower Junction from where they will proceed to the Immersion Ghat at 8:30 a.m.

To avoid traffic hassles all Puja Committees have been directed to control their volunteers and any dance which can disturb or block the traffic has been banned. In case any committee violates directives, the Police will take stringent action, and for which Hindu Seva Samiti will not be held responsible, the release asserted. HSS further wished a Happy Durga Puja to all.
