Kolkata, Oct 19: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday performed Kali Puja at her residence at the Kalighat area in the southern part of the city.

Mamata prepares 'bhog' for decades-old Kali Puja at home

For the last three decades, the puja is being performed at her house. Banerjee, who fasted during the day and prepared the 'bhog' (offering to the Goddess), played host to scores of guests, which included VVIPs, cabinet colleagues, politicians and commoners.

The doors of Banerjee's spartan home at Harish Chatterjee Street here were thrown open to the public today. Clad in her trademark cotton saree and rubber slippers, Banerjee stood with folded hands and greeted the people and VIPs at her single-storey house for the puja.

Keeping in view the large number of visitors thronging Banerjee's residence, the police had strengthened security arrangements in and around the area.
