The weather is also now in our favour. For few days, due to Titli the weather was in bad shape but now Titli is also gone and weather is in our favour. We'r hopeful that puja will go nicely and the preparations in this regard is already completed. Public are rushing the pandals which proves that the state is in festive mood. The coming days also will go well, we are hoping that. I am now visiting this temple (Durga Bari) where the final touch is being given before Durga Puja. From State Govt side, I greet whole Tripura. Wishing everyone to stay well in Durga Puja".
