| Saturday | 25th January, 2020
Suri (WB): Authorities of Visva Bharati University are willing to hold the annual 'Basanta Utsav' on its usual schedule, the day of Holi, if the West Bengal government provides adequate security for the event, an official said.
"A committee has been formed to look into the date of 'Basanta Utsav'.
If the state government ensures adequate security and other related arrangements, the festival may be celebrated on March 9," Visva Bharati spokesperson Anirban Sarkar said on Friday evening.
However, the proposal to hold the event on a different date had sparked controversy and led to protests by a section of students.
The 'Basanta Utsav' is held inside the campus of the central university in Birbhum district.
