Hyderabad | 12th September 2021
Telangana Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav today said that the state government would file a review petition in the HC against its order banning the immersion of Plaster of Paris Ganesh idols in the Hussain Sagar.
The minister, alongside Khairatabad MLA Danam Nagender, visited the Khairathabad Ganesh installation in the city, and performed special pujas there as part of the festival.
Speaking on the occasion, Yadav said, ?If the court had given these instructions well in advance, the pandal organisers and the government would have made alternative arrangements. Unfortunately, by the time the HC ordered the ban, most idols had already reached the pandals. We will make efforts from next year to follow the court?s instructions. It is not possible this year, however, since there is no possibility of arranging temporary ponds in the city to submerge the Plaster of Paris idols in such a short time. The court needs to therefore consider allowing the immersion of all Ganesh idols? immersion in the Hussain Sagar this year without any conditions, and not just those not made of Plaster of Paris.?
The government would take the responsibility for the removal of related debris and waste from the lake in 48 hours, he said. ?The officials concerned will be pressed into service to ensure that the waste material is removed from the Hussain Sagar within two days after immersion,? he asserted.
