At Gandhi Nagar, an idol of Durgadevi was installed at Shivalaya. The Dasara Jumboo Savari Utsav Samiti which decided to have a simple celebration this year due to the pandemic, took out a procession from Bandemma Temple to Shivalaya in Gandhi Nagar and offered puja to the Durgadevi idol.
There will be no fair or cultural programmes as part of Navaratri this year due to Covid-19 and people were content performing puja at their homes.
