Earlier in the day, CM Sarma visited the Mahalaxmi Temple in the city.
Meanwhile, slamming Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao, Sarma said, “Chief Minister KCR speaks about BJP-free politics but we speak about dynasty-free politics. We still see pictures of his son and daughter in Hyderabad. Country’s politics should be free from dynastic politics.”
It is to be noted that the Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samiti had invited Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and Udupi seer Pejawar Swamy Dharmadhikari to visit Hyderabad for the Ganesh Immersion Shobhayatra.
“Every year one or the other chief guest is invited on Ganesh Chaturthi and this year we have invited Assam CM Hemanta Biswa Sarma, which he has accepted. Similarly, Dharmacharya Udipi Pejawar Swamy has also been invited to take part in the Ganesh celebration,” ANI quoted General Secretary of the Utsav Samiti Bhagwanth Rao as saying.
“We have made elaborated arrangements for welcoming Assam CM and Ganesh mandaps are also been prepared for him. The aim of the Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samiti is to promote the Daivya Bhakti and Deshbhakti. Hence, we have invited Assam CM to come for immersion Shobha Yatra, which he will attend and address as the Chief guest,” he added.
Earlier, the Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samithi on Tuesday held a bike rally in Secunderabad as a mark of protest against the Telangana government for preventing the immersion of Ganesh idols on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Ganesh Chaturthi marks the birth of Lord Ganesha. It is one of the most popular Hindu festivals and is celebrated for 10 days. It is believed that during this time, Lord Ganesha visits the mortal world with his mother, Goddess Parvati, and showers blessings on the people.
People worship Lord Ganesha in their homes, temples and pandals.
