To reach the two ghats, two to three KMs have to be
walked on foot . In view of Corona, this time the administration has arranged Chhath at limited ghats. Due to the absence of vehicles and parking facilities to the ghats, people will have to walk this time to bring Ganga water. Those who live far away from the Ganga Ghat will have to struggle a lot to reach the ghat this time, as the district administration has banned the operation of vehicles from Danapur to Didarganj on Chhath.
DM Kumar Ravi said that Digha and Collectorate Ghat are more crowded. Therefore, this time vehicles will not go to both these ghats. In such a situation, people have to park vehicles before Rajapur Digha Road. From there, you have to reach the ghat by walking three kilometers. The DM has appealed to the people not to do Chhath at the ghats of the Ganges in view of the corona infection. It is better that they worship at home. DM Kumar Ravi said that all the preparations have been completed at the ghats which have been marked for Chhath. The ghats, which are slightly deficient, will be completed by 12 noon on Wednesday, so that people do not face any kind of trouble.

Gandhi Setu and JP Setu
DM said that it has been decided to keep Gandhi Setu and JP Setu operational during Chhath Puja so that the vehicles can go out of Patna. He informed that vehicles will continue to operate in other parts of the city. But vehicles will not ply on the road connected to and from Danapur to Didarganj.
