CM said that for the last twenty years, Kshipra Parikrama and Ganga Dashami are being organised in which the enlightened citizens of the society, common citizens and scholars of history and archeology also participate. It is also a festival symbolizing social harmony. Presentation of bhajans and other cultural programmes is its specialty. By expanding this rich tradition in the entire state, the idea of organising events on the ghats of other rivers also should be realized with the participation of citizens.
