Birbhum: Union Minister Pranab
Mukherjee today worshipped Goddess Durga at his ancestral home
in Mirati village on `Mahasaptami`, the first day of the
four-day long puja.
Dressed in a spotless dhoti, Mukherjee arrived at this
remote village in Birbhum district in the morning from
his sister`s house at nearby Kirnahar.
As the priest performed puja and `aarti`, Mukherjee
recited `Chandipath` before the idol.
The Finance minister later attended a credit disbursal
programme organised by Corporation Bank and micro-finance
organisation Bandhan at his village.
