Wakad, August 21, 2020: Ganesh Chathurthi will be observed low-key in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, due to the ongoing Coronavirus disease(COVID-19) pandemic, as instructed by the Maharashtra State government. However, there is a state of chaos amongst the citizens on how to celebrate the festival and most importantly confusion related to immersions of the Ganesh idols.

In an initiative, Wakad’s Vinayak Gaikwad Youth Foundation has constructed a tank to prevent crowding on the ghat, and the citizens have been appealed to immerse the idols in this tank.

The outbreak of COVID has been spiking up in areas under Pimpri Chinchwad and to ensure that people are safe former corporator Vinayak Gaikwad has initiated the construction of Ganesh immersion tanks at Euro School Pink city road, near Global Punjab Hotel, Utkarsh Chowk, Chhatrapati Chowk and at Kaspatevasti as well.

Speaking to, Gaikwad said, “Our request to all the citizens is to follow the protocols and only immerse the idols inside the 7-feet built tanks. We have assigned workers who will ensure that the residents follow social distancing and all the protocols issued by the state government.”

The state government has also appealed the people to use eco-friendly Ganesh idols which can be immersed at home also. This will prevent gathering for immersion of the idols.
