Animal Husbandry Minister, Talasani Srinivas today said that the state government moved to the Supreme Court against the Telangana high court orders on Ganesh idols immersion in Hussain Sagar. He said that the state government will take a decision after the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on our appeal. The SC is to deliver the decision on Wednesday on the same appeal.
The State government urged SC to stall the orders issued by the high court stalling immersion of Plaster of Paris idols and some restrictions on festivities.
Srinivas Yadav informed a team of Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samithi (BGUS) and VHP who called on him. They urged the government to take necessary steps to continue the ongoing tradition of idol immersion despite any verdict coming from the Supreme Court. The minister briefed them about the government’s efforts on the same issue.
The State government has moved the apex court as the high court refused to accept a house motion petition after denying permission on the waiver of conditions. The minister said that the government will take a decision on the same after the verdict comes from the Supreme Court.
The BGUS has called upon the people to participate in protests against the conditions by the high court against the immersion of the pop idol.
The Court denied the petition by the GHMC Commissioner Lokesh Kumar who sought to relax its previous orders on the Ganesh idols immersion, place, Plaster of Paris, colors, and set up ponds. The petition said that the situation will go out of hand if the court fails to set aside its conditions. The bench of acting Chief Justice, Justice M S Ramchandra Rao, and Justice T Vinod Kumar expressed displeasure at the government for not taking steps to make alternate measurements for big idol immersion.
