River depth may cause problems for Chhath devotees

MUNGER: Owing to increase in the water level of the Ganga here, thousands of Chhath devotees may face problems this year as there would be
limited space to accommodate the thousands of devotees descending on its ghats to worship the Sun god.

Kastaharni Ghat, Babua Ghat, Jail Ghat and Piparpanti Ghat are the only ones available to the devotees to perform Chhath puja on the occasion.

Incidentally, prices of various commodities and foodstuff have hit the roof. For example, fruits, including banana, coconut, orange and apple, have been selling at exorbitant rates.
