Ganesh Pandals Have To Act Responsibly

Since these days cities are prone to malaria, dengue and other such diseases, the pandals have to behave responsibly and make sure that the Ganesh Chaturthi pandal premises are clean. The pandals should not pose any issue to the people who will be on their daily travel route by road. The quick safety options like fire extinguishers should be available in every pandal. When pandals for Ganesh Chaturthi are constructed, many a times they have to dig pits for the same on the roads, hence it is the duty of the pandal itself to fill it after the festival. Failing which a fine of ₹2000 will be imposed .Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Eknath Shinde announced that there will be no restrictions on the height of the idol this year.
