The newly-inaugurated show will replace the existing decorative lighting with 650 power-efficient LED and spotlight fittings for a programmable multi-color lighting, including a show that will sync with music.
Those present at the venue during the inauguration include West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and Union Minister of Shipping (independent charge) Mansukh Mandaviya.
