Be Careful How You Dunk Your Gods


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday urged people to work towards preventing water pollution during the immersion of Ganesh idols by ensuring that plastic and other waste does not go into sea. The PM is on a one-day tour of Maharashtra and he began his journey by taking the darshan of Lord Ganesh in suburban Vile Parle in Mumbai. "I would like to give a suggestion for 'One Indian-One Pledge'. We need to protect the environment and do away with single-use plastic. We have to avoid water pollution. During Ganesh visarjan, heaps of plastic and other waste go into the sea. We have to stop that," the PM Modi said.
