Ganesh Festival haunts by credit issue


PUNE: Alleging state government for changing history of world famous Ganesh Festival of Pune, Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust today claimed that freedom fighter Bhausaheb Rangari alias Bhau Laxman Jawale has initiated Ganesh Festival to boost freedom movement in 1892 and he should get his credit in history.

Alarming to state government, Suraj Renuse, one of the trustees, said that the history written is one-sided. If government will not change history, the Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust will undertake agitations, rallys. We appreciate the credit of the then national leader, Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, making people aware about India’s freedom but in case of credit issue of establishment of Ganesh Festival, Bhausaheb Rangari should get a respectable mention about his work in history.

It is widely accepted that leader Lokmanya Tilak had initiated Ganesh Festival, but this new thought may create ruckus in the social world of the state.
