Hyderabad | 11th September 2021
The Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samithi (BGUS) today criticized the recent order of the Telangana High Court banning the immersion of Plaster of Paris (POP) Ganesh idols in the Hussain Sagar lake.
The BGUS said that courts were giving verdicts against the Indian constitution.
It also alleged that the courts were also thrusting themselves into issues which are not within their purview.
The general secretary of the Samithi Bhagavanth Rao said that it was the right of the people of the state capital to not only worship God but also immerse His idols.
He alleged that the officials of the state government had submitted wrong reports to the HC, and that the HC had given its verdict imposing restrictions on idol immersion based on the incomplete details provided by the government.
He demanded that the state government file a review petition on the issue, and said that the government should go even to the Supreme Court on the issue if required in order to get immersion of idols in the Hussain Sagar allowed.
Rao said that the state government should also check the quality of the water before and after the immersion of the idols, and that there was no report to prove that Ganesh idol immersion led to pollution of the water of the lake.
He claimed that the waters of the Hussain Sagar were being polluted due to the waters from the storm water drains, and that the lake had already been completely polluted.
