During an inspection of Chhath Ghat in Patna, a boat carrying Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar collided with an under-construction pillar of the JP Setu bridge.
CM was personally present at the Ganga river bank to ensure safety arrangements and proper cleanliness for devotees at the time of the incident. There are no injuries to anyone aboard the boat, including the Chief Minister.
On October 30 and 31, Chhath Puja will be celebrated. After Diwali, fasting women offer “arghya” to the Sun god in knee-deep water during Chhath. Purvanchalis living in Delhi love this festival.
