Thousands of people converged on Red Road to have a look at the best of the puja idols which were being sashayed down the streets accompanied with dance and skit performances.

Mamata, who has many a time been accused of Minority appeasement, has been praised by many for her idea of having the best idols being showcased along Red Road.
