This festival is of great significance amongst the farmers. After sowing of seeds, the bullocks are freed from their work in the fields; they are scrubbed and bathed.

Why do those who raise issue of water pollution during Ganesh festival, not dare to talk about massive water pollution caused daily by industrial waste?

The Maharashtra Government has published a dashboard on quantities of sewage daily generated, its treatment and disposal in the jurisdictions of Municipal Corporations and Municipal Councils in February 2014. This will make it clear if the water pollution is occurring due to the Ganesh Idols or due to negligence of Government officials.
