The West Bengal government led by Mamata Banerjee will move the Supreme Court on Friday to challenge the Calcutta High Court order that allowed immersion of Durga idols on all days from Vijayadashami on September 30, including on Muharram.
The ruling Trinamool Congress convened an emergency meeting on Thursday evening during which it was decided that they will appeal against the High Court’s decision in the apex court tomorrow.
Mamata, who inaugurated a Durga Puja pandal here today, expressed her dissatisfaction on High Court’s ruling and said, “Someone can slit my throat but no one can tell me what to do. I will do what I can to keep the peace.”
