The Hindu celebrations are being held in the national capital on Saturday.

We have already held the last one in September and there will be another in October, said Dushyant Singh, national president of the Hindu Rashtra Samithi.

It will be the first time we will celebrate the Independence Day on November 8.

This year, the event is being celebrated in honour of the people of Bengaluru, said K.S. Bhagat, director general of the government-run Bharat Mata ki Jai Trust.

The celebrations are aimed at highlighting the contribution of the Bengali people to India and to the freedom movement that made the country the greatest in the world, he said.

The celebrations, organised in partnership with the Bengaluru Municipal Corporation, will be held from 12.30 am till 2 pm, he added.
