Coimbatore all set to celebrate Vinayaka Chathurthi

With Vinayaka Chathurthi just a day away, Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board has started creating awareness among devotes to celebrate the festival of Lord Ganesha without causing any harm to the environment.
Board chairman Vikram Kapur has issued a statement in Coimbatore on Sunday urging devotees to use idols made out of raw clay devoid of chemicals. He also warned against using baked clay idols. The idols can be immersed only in water bodies specially identified by the board and they must not be made of chemicals like plaster of Paris.
Meanwhile, district collector M Karunagaran has permitted idol immersion in selected parts of Singanallur lake, Muthannan Kulam and Samalapuram Lake. Immersion would be allowed in Bhavani River at Sirumugai, Elagampalayam, Mettupalayam, Subramanian Koil and Thekkampatti. Immersion would be allowed in Ambarampalayam River in Pollachi and selected points in Noyyal river and Upparu in Anamalai.
