KOLKATA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to attend a programme in Kolkata in December in which about 1 lakh people will chant Bhagavad Gita together, the BJP’s West Bengal president Sukanta Majumdar said on Monday. The programme, ‘Ek Lakh Gita Path’, will be held at the Brigade Parade Ground on December 24, he said. “We have invited PM Modi to attend the program, and he has accepted our invitation,” he said. Several religious groups have come together to organise the massive event, he added. “It will be an apolitical programme,” Majumdar claimed, adding that invitations will also be sent to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Governor CV Ananda Bose and other noted personalities of the state.
