On Tuesday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde offered his prayers to Lord Ganesha at his Mumbai residence, marking the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Visuals of the CM and his wife performing the Ganesh aarti have since surfaced on the internet.

Following the prayer ceremony, CM Shinde took a moment to interact with the media personnel present at his residence. He extended warm greetings to all Ganesh devotees and shared insights from his recent visit to Jammu & Kashmir.

“I extend greetings to all Ganesh devotees. I was in J&K yesterday, where people were celebrating Ganeshotsav at Lal Chowk in Srinagar. I pray that the ‘Vighnaharta’ removes all obstacles before the people of Maharashtra,” said CM Eknath Shinde while conveying his best wishes.

CM Shinde’s Visit to Ganeshotsav Mandal in Lal Chowk

CM Eknath Shinde had embarked on a two-day visit to Kashmir starting on Sunday. During his stay, he also visited the Ganeshotsav Mandal in Lal Chowk, where the local Marathi Sonar community has been observing the festival for the past 24 years.

Shinde, accompanied by Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha, prayed to Lord Ganesha for the removal of all ‘vighnas’ (obstacles/hindrances) in Jammu & Kashmir and for prosperity for all residents. It is worth noting that the Marathi community in Srinagar had previously celebrated the Ganeshotsav festival in their homes, but for the past 24 years, they have held a public celebration at the Panchmukhi Hanuman Temple in Lal Chowk, with active participation from the local Muslim communities.

Additionally, during their visit, CM Shinde and Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha attended a program to honor 73 senior citizens through Sarhad, unveiled a 72-foot Tricolour for the Indian Army at Chhanigund, and released the Marathi translation of Gen. Ved Prakash Malik’s book, entitled ‘Kargil Ashcharyacha Dhakka Te Vijay.’ The visit underscored the unity and cultural diversity celebrated during Ganeshotsav in the region.
