Kolkata: The West Bengal government has built around 1,500 artificial ponds in and around Kolkata for devotees to perform Chhath Puja on Friday.

The Kolkata police have set up barricades outside Rabindra Sarobar lake and Subhas Sarobar lake where devotees have been banned from performing the Chhath puja.

Police pickets have also been set up in various places to restrain any procession of devotees.

A police officer said, “Only two persons per family would be allowed to enter a water body to perform the puja.”

Meanwhile, chief minister Mamata Banerjee appealed to the Chhath devotees to perform rituals at home or in their respective neighbourhoods, using artificial water tanks created by the government over the past few days.

Banerjee said, “We have created artificial water bodies for your convenience. In case you need to visit a river bank, please follow health protocols related to COVID-19 pandemic and travel in small groups. Follow court orders and do not form processions.”
