Between the speeches, poetry recitations, songs, plays and dance performances took place in phases on the program.

Addressing the program as a key guest, UC Vice Chancellor Prof. Shirin Akhter said that all religious people including Hindus and Muslims have lived in this country for a long time maintaining the community harmony.

She called for unity so that no evil power could destroy the existing harmony among the people of the land.

Professor Benu Kumar Dey of CU Pro-VC said secularism is one of the fundamental elements of the constitution. And the celebration of Durga Puja is part of this secularism, he said, adding that an invested neighborhood carries out attacks against the Hindu community in the name of a religion that has overcome the barbarity of the Pakistani occupying forces.

Later, a play named Shei Sompriti Chai was staged on the program.
