A week back, TRS working president KT Rama Rao took to Twitter to share an idea from Ahmedabad that people in Hyderabad can emulate to protect lakes from pollution due to the immersion of Ganesh idols. Rao shared a tweet by Amdavad Municipal Corporation commissioner Vijay Nehra on how residents of the region decided to keep the Sabarmati clean by not immersing idols of goddess Dashama in the river. Rather, they left the idols on the river bank, to be later removed by the municipal authorities. He urged people in Hyderabad to take a lesson from Ahmedabad and emulate the same during Ganesh Utsav 2019.
