HYDERABAD:The state government will construct 36 new ghats apart from renovating the 16 old bathing ghats for  the ensuing Krishna Pushkarams. Endowments minister A Indrakaran Reddy held a review meeting with the officials concerned at the Secretariat here on Thursday on the arrangements for Krishna Pushkarams to be conducted in August next.

Indrakaran Reddy said there were 16 bathing ghats in Nalgonda and Mahbubnagar districts. With suggestions from local peoples’ representatives, 36 more ghats would be added taking the total bathing ghats to 52.
