Dussehra, the Hindu festival signifying the victory of good over evil, was celebrated across West Bengal on Saturday.

Among other places, a 60-foot-tall effigy of Ravana, and two 50-foot-tall effigies of Meghnada and Kumbhakarana were burnt at the Central Park in Salt Lake this evening.

The event organisers presented Mehbooba Mufti with a shawl as a token of love. Minister for Public Works Naeem Akhtar, MLCs Surinder Ambardar and Khurshid Alam, senior officers and people from different walks of life were present on the occasion.

Speaking at the event, Modi said that festivals "are a medium of education and teach us unity".

Last year, Modi had participated in the Dussehra celebrations in Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh which was then facing assembly elections.

BJP chief Amit Shah attended another such event nearby, organised by the Luv Kush Ram Lila commitee near the Red Fort, while Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi attended the one organised by the Nav Shri Dharmik Lila Committee.
