The preparations for Durga Puja are in full swing. Meanwhile, a special puja pandal is being built in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal. In this puja pandal, a glimpse of the farmers’ movement will be seen, as well as a glimpse of the recent incident in Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh. People coming to Dum Dum Park Bharat Chakra Pandal can see its view.
It is being told that at the beginning of the pandal i.e. a tractor will be seen near the entrance gate. The names of the protesters protesting against the agricultural laws have been written on small pieces of paper on this tractor. Apart from this tractor wings have also been made. Actually, through this an attempt has been made to send the message that farmers want to fly and achieve their goals.
Apart from the farmers movement, this pandal will also have a glimpse of the recent incident in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. Through 3D and 4D paintings, crowds of people, their footprints will be seen on the walls of the pandal. Apart from this, a car will be seen in which the original tires have been installed. It is shown in the pandal that this car is crushing the protesting farmers.
