HYDERABAD: The Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav committee on Sunday alleged that the government lacks integrity. Neither the Advocate General nor the Additional Advocate General, even an experienced Public Prosecutor, did not appear in the crucial hearing regarding the immersion. When the court had directed him to file an affidavit, the government did not file all the papers.
The committee said, the government had sent a young and inexperienced public prosecutor to hear this important issue. The government issued GO 233 on 27 July 2001, which stated that only idols made of plaster of Paris would be used. Why did the government not place these orders before the court. He asked question. On earlier occasions, the bench had allowed immersion of idols, but wanted these to be removed within 24 hours. Even these decisions were not brought to the notice of the Court.
Objecting to the notice given by the police, BJP MLA T Raja Singh asked the devotees not to immerse the idol in the tank dam. Without giving any option, he questioned how the police could give notice. If the government stops the immersion of idols in the tank dam, they will keep the idols in Pragati Bhavan, warned the BJP leader.
