Chaliya Mahotsava concludes

Pithoragarh, September 26
Five-day cultural festival Chaliya Mahotsava, which concluded today, was used by local politicians and cultural groups as a platform to demonstrate their achievements before public. The organisers of the festival have made it customary to invite leading politicians and local cultural troupes to perform on the stage. “We have invited politicians and public representatives of various parties as we need their cooperation for the success of the programme,” said Pawan Joshi, secretary of the Chaliya Mahotsava Samiti.
The mahotsava was inaugurated four days ago by Cabinet minister Dinesh Aggarwal, a Congress leader, while Rajendra Singh Rawat, a BJP youth leader and chairman of the Pithoragarh Nagar Palika Parishad, was the chief guest of the inauguration programme. “We invited UKD leader Kashi Singh Airy on the third day of the festival and were expecting Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Harish Rawat tonight to be the chief guest of the valedictory function of the mahotsava,” said Joshi.
“We have given a chance to 40 local schools of the town in last four days to perform on the stage. The mahotsava provides an opportunity to the schools to exhibit talent of their students,” said Joshi.
