MUMBAI: NCP president Sharad Pawar will inaugurate the month-long ‘Aarogya Utsav’ in the premises of the Lalbaugcha Raja Ganeshotsav Mandal August 3. The event will also commemorate the death centenary of Lokmanya Tilak who passed away August 1, 1920.
The Lalbaugcha Raja trust has decided to forgo its usual idol worship and festivity owing to the Covid-19 outbreak. It will instead organise medical camps and charity drives this Ganeshotsav.
Pawar will cut the ribbon of the first plasma donation camp Monday evening. Subsequently, the mandal will team up with KEM Hospital blood bank for a plasma registration drive. Mandal president Balasaheb Kamble said they will award Rs 2 lakh each to the families of 22 soldiers martyred in the recent Galwan skirmish. The mandal will present Rs 1 lakh to policemen who succumbed to Covid-19 and felicitate Covid warriors from various walks of life.
Blood donation camps will be held from 10.00am to 5.00pm on all ten days of Ganeshotsav.
