Vadodara: Since time immemorial, devotees from every corner of the city have been taking out processions and immersing Ganesh idols in Sursagar Lake.
Immersing Ganesh idols in artificial ponds is the best way to prevent water pollution,” Sashidhar said.Environment activist, Rohit Prajapati said, “It is a welcome move and the decision to not allow idol immersion in Sursagar Lake has to be implemented strictly.
A 12-metre ghaat has been made around the lake that has no water,” said Dr Vinod Rao, municipal commissioner.
In fact, there should be ban on idol immersion in all the water bodies along with Mahi River.”
Thousands of Barodians throng the lake to watch the processions every year and offer prayers to the lord.
