The KMC upheld the humanitarian side of the statutory body like previous years by honouring and paying respect to the elder citizens of the Old-Age Home on the occasion of the upcoming Durga Puja. The reason for undertaking such an initiative is the elderly people of the Old Age Homes are far away from their respective families. They too are the part of the society and have the right to enjoy the spirit of Durga Puja.
To celebrate the spirit and essence of the best festival of the Bengal, new clothes have been gifted to the residents of Nabanir, an Old Age Home situated at 1/2 , Shyam Bose Street,Ward no.-82, Br.-IX by Hon'ble Mayor & MIC Housing, Environment, Fire and Emergency Services Govt.of W.B. Sovan Chatterjee on Sept.28 ,2016.
Hon'ble MIC Municipal Affairs and Urban Development Govt.of W.B Janab Firhad Hakim also honoured the residents with flowers and sweets. The civic body has also decided to gift new cloths to 7 Old Age Home residents under its jurisdiction on the occasion of Durga Puja.
The programme was attended by eminent personalities to mention Hon'ble Chairman KMC, Mala Roy , MMIC (Health Insurance Scheme,BPL,NSAP,NFBS,NGR) Indrani Saha Banerjee, MMIC (Bustee Development, Environment, SJSRY) Swapan Samaddar, Chairman Borough-IX Ratan Malakar and many other guests.
