Make Godavari Maha Pushkarams a grand fete: CM Chandrababu

Hyderabad: To make Godavari Maha Pushkarams 2015 a national event and a celebration of people’s spiritual relationship with River Godavari, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said that the 12-day event should be held in a grand manner. “Godavari Pushkarams should be promoted in a way where we infuse new vigour into people, directing it towards development of the State, instead of making it a mere cultural event. 

The reason we are emphasising on this River is because we are trying to drought-proof the state with this river’s water,” he said. He added, “We can have theme-based activities where knowledge-integration is linked with cultural performances, contests/exhibitions, etc.”
