Gautama Brahma: The administration was shaken by the accident during idol worship in Mal river in Duars. How did this accident happen in the river Mal? Nabanna asked the local administration to submit a report on whether there was adequate security or negligence at the administrative level. Not only this, the state government has issued new evacuation guidelines across the state to ensure that such incidents do not recur.
State Chief Secretary Harikrishna Dwivedi has already held a virtual meeting with Navanna regarding the cargo accident. The Secretary-General ordered strict precautions to be taken during the release in areas prone to eruptions or emergency ghats. District Magistrates (DMs) and Sub-Divisional Magistrates should be present during discharge at ghats which may lead to accidents. In all Vizarjan ghats, lower-level administration officials were asked to be present during the desecration of idols. If there is any risk, this cannot be done. It is also necessary to ensure that no one can go down into the river during the dive.

Although the Vijay Dashami rituals ended on Wednesday, the process of cleaning the idols is still going on in many places. Of late, there has been a trend of leaving the idols in the mandap even after Dasami, especially during big-budget pujas. In this regard, the quarantine in the districts will last two more days. The state government is taking all measures to prevent accidents from happening again.
