On the occasion of ongoing Ganesh festival, Nagpur Municipal Commissioner Abhijit Bangar appealed, that citizens should take initiative to immerse household Ganesh idols in artificial ponds and not immerse them in the lake.
Mayor Nanda Jichkar and Commissioner Abhijit Bangar took a review of the preparations regarding the Ganesh immersion system at a meeting held at Dr. Punjabrao Deshmukh Auditorium in Municipal Headquarters on Wednesday.
