Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who conceptualised it was present along with her ministers and Tollywood stars during the extravaganza.

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.

Significantly, Red Road is also a place where every year Eid prayers get offered and observers believe that by choosing the road for the carnival, Bengal Chief Minister is trying to give a strong message to the opposition parties that every religion is equal for her government.

And in its third year, the carnival seemed to have taken a full shape as several Tollywood actors and consulate generals were present during the Durga Puja idol showcasing event.
