Hyderabad, Sept.7 (Hydnow): Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav has reiterated that there are no restrictions on the immersion of Ganesh Idols in Hussain Sagar Lake and the immersion procedure will be held on September 9 as per the schedule.
Speaking to the media here on Wednesday after offering prayers to the Khairatabad Ganesh, Minister Srinivas Yadav alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were trying to politicize the Ganesh immersion and were deliberately creating confusion among the people in the name of the festival.
The Minister said authorities are busy with arrangements for the mass immersion of Ganesh Idols at Tank Bund on September 9 and cranes have already been deployed at immersion spots.
” The authorities are engaged in arrangements and are taking elaborate steps for the smooth conduct of immersion procedure. But, it is very unfortunate that why BJP leaders are organizing rallies and staging protests in the name of immersion in the city” Talasani said.
Later, Talasani Srinivas Yadav visited the cranes deployed at NTR Marg and moved around the Tank Bund to inspect the ongoing arrangements.
Meanwhile, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) with the help of the police department is planning to conduct the Ganesh immersion in about 60 water bodies, including the Hussainsagar and the Saroornagar lake and 74 artificial ponds. (Hydnow)
