With the Lalbaugcha Raja Ganesh Mandal deciding to not celebrate the Ganeshotsav this year, Sharad Pawar, NCP stalwart, on Monday, August 3, inaugurated the plasma donation camp which has been initiated by the Mandel itself to mark the death centenary year of Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, the architect of present-day Ganesh Chathurthi celebrations.

Pawar, speaking to the media, stated, that the Mandal has decided to give ₹1 lakh each to the families of 92 policemen, who lost lives in the line of duty. Moreover, it is touted to give out funding of ₹2 lakhs to the kin of CRPF jawan Sunil Kale.

On June 23, two terrorists who are believed to be a part of a terror group were gunned down by the security forces in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. According to the police, the joint operation was launched by the Indian Army’s 55 Rashtriya Rifle, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the SoG Pulwama in Bundzoo area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama on classified information.

Meanwhile, during the encounter, Sunil Kale, from Maharashtra, received serious gunshot injuries and later on succumbed to his wounds and attained martyrdom.

On the other hand, the Brihanmumbai Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Samanvay Samiti has urged the BMC to build more artificial ponds across the city in view of the Ganeshotsav. The organisation has stated that the civic body has 34 artificial ponds at the moment, however, the civic body is conducting surveys to build more of these ponds for the immersion of the idol.

In a state like Maharashtra, that is actively battling the outbreak of coronavirus, it becomes pertinent for the people to safeguard their own selves and celebrate the festival in a simplistic, muted manner this year. However, the state must welcome Bappa, in what has become the new normal across the globe in the midst of the pandemic.
