Mumbai's iconic Lalbaughcha Raja Ganeshotsav Mandal will not be holding any festivities for Ganesh Utsav this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The mandal will instead set up a blood and plasma donation camp to aid in the fight against Covid-19. Authorities have already been conducting health check-ups and organising blood donation camps. People from across India come to get a glimpse of the idol at Lalbaugcha Raja. This is the first time in the history of the mandal that the idol will not be set up. The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi begins on the 22nd of August this year.
