Arrangements for immersion of Ganesh idols reviewed.
Kurnool: District Collector S Satyanarayana instructed the officials concerned to ensure that the immersion of Ganesh idols goes smoothly on September 2.
The Collector reviewed the arrangements for idol immersion with the officials at a meeting in the Collectorate here on Wednesday.
Officials should be on high alert as Bakrid and immersion festivals are falling on the same day, he stated and added that people should be educated to celebrate the festivals in a peaceful atmosphere.
The Collector directed RDO D Hussain Saheb, DSP DV Ramana Murthy, Municipal Corporation Commissioner, Harinath Reddy and Ganesh Mahotsava Central Committee members to ensure that the immersion of idols should be done at one place.
Recalling the water scarcity at Kurnool-Cuddapah (KC) Canal during 1998 and 2002, the members said that water was stored for immersion by putting sand bags.
He directed the Irrigation department Superintending Engineer Chandrasekhar Rao to release water into KC Canal on September 1 so that the water will reach the immersion ghat on September 2.
Satyanarayana informed Harinath Reddy to complete the cleaning of KC Canal before water is released.
In the meeting, officials were told to install CCTV cameras, to provide uninterrupted power and continuous supply of drinking water to devotees, setting up first-aid centres and making cranes available for the immersion.
