Chhath Puja now a public holiday!

 A public holiday has been declared in the city on Wednesday on account of Chhath Puja. “The lt-Governor of National Capital Territory of Delhi is pleased to declare Wednesday, the October 29, as a holiday in all Government offices under the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi on account of Chhath Puja,” a Delhi notification stated.

All Delhi Government offices will remain closed on Wednesday unlike last year when it was a restricted holiday. The move comes following BJP’s and lakhs of Purvanchalis pushing for Chhath Puja to be declared a public holiday.
