Most Durga pandals in Kolkata are not accessible
October 19, 2016
A study has found that most Durga Puja pandals in Kolkata are not accessible to people with disabilities.
The arrangements made were not suitable for people with physical challenges.
All the major puja pandals had been informed about the visit of people with disabilities. However, there were no wheelchairs or ramps at the venues.
Even volunteers were not there to help them.
Activists say that the state government must look at steps to ensure that durga puja pandals are made accessible.
