Mumbai’s famous Lalbaughcha Raja festival will not be having big idol for the first time in history. Instead, a blood donation and plasma therapy camp will be organised for 10 days of the festival. This decision has been taken by the organisers of the famous festival.
“In view of the coronavirus pandemic this year, the Mandal has decided to hold blood donation and plasma donation Camp for 11 days instead of installing a Ganapati idol,” said Lalbaughcha Raja Ganeshotsav Mandal treasurer Mangesh Dalvi.
Since its establishment in 1934, Ganeshotsav is celebrated here every year with great pomp and show. About 1.25 crore devotees visited this holy place last year. The statue of Lord Ganesh is about 14 feet tall and is the biggest attraction during Ganesh festival in Mumbai.
