India will build a multi-purpose community centre near the temple so that it can accommodate scores of pilgrims during fairs, and can also act as a shelter house in the time of need, PM Modi said.
Praying for a Coronavirus-free world at Bangladesh’s Jeshoreshwari Kali temple early on Saturday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he feels fortunate to visit the goddess just ahead of the Chaitra Navratri. PM Modi, who is on a two-day visit to the neighbouring country, was seen wearing a mark as he was welcomed in the temple, which was renovated on the occasion of PM Modi’s visit. He also offered a hand-made, gold-plated silver crown to the goddess.
Ishwaripur village in Shyamnagar upazila of Satkhira border West Bengal. PM said during fairs, many people visit the temple from across the border too. That’s why a community centre is needed, which can double as a shelter home during an emergency, like a cyclone. “A number of devotees come here during Kaali Puja. So a multi-purpose community hall is needed here, which can become a shelter house during any disaster, especially cyclone. The Indian government will construct a community hall here. I express my gratitude to the Bangladesh government that it has also wished us well for this work,” PM Modi said.
