A division bench of the High Court on Tuesday said all the material left in Hussainsagar after the immersion of Ganesh idols shall be cleared within 24 hours.

The bench was disposing of a batch of petitions filed M Venu Madhav, an advocate of the city, and others, complaining that the lake is polluted due to immersion and the main bund is being damaged.

Last week, the bench passed orders directing authorities to hold a meet ing of Ganesh Utsav Samithis. It suggested the proposal of symbolic immersion be considered.

The court had made it clear that no material shall be burnt. Various other directions were also issued.

Volunteers: The Adventure Club of AP (ACAP) invites volunteers for assistance in rescue operations during Ganesh Visarjan at Tank Bund. Volunteers aged above 18 years with swimming and life-saving techniques experience can apply. Contact K Ranga Rao on mobile 9394883999 for details.
