The weather may dampen the spirit of the people during the most awaited Durga puja, an annual Hindu festival, as the Regional Meteorological Centre, Guwahati has predicted scattered rainfall in the Northeast region.
The puja organising committees have already faced trouble across the state due to incessant rain for the last few days. Artisans have found it inconvenient to construct the pandals due to rain.
Heavy to very heavy rain has been predicted over the Northeast region from September 30th, 2019 to October 5th, 2019. Thunderstorm with lighting is also predicted at isolated places in the region.
The puja will begin on October 4th, 2019.
