There will be no Lalbaugcha Raja in 2020 as Lalbaugcha Raja Ganeshotsav Mandal has decided not to hold any festivity on Ganesh Chaturthi due to COVID-19.
According to Sudhir Sitaram Salvi, committee representative of Lalbaugcha Raja, “we are cancelling the celebrations this year. Instead, we will utilise the 11 days to organise blood donation and plasma donation activities. The next Ganesh Chaturthi celebration will be in September 2021 for Lalbaugcha Raja”.
While most of the Ganpati mandals in Mumbai have decided to hold the festival in February 2021 during Magh Chaturthi, the organisers of Lalbaugcha Raja have decided to completely cancel the Ganeshotsav 2020 till September 9, 2021, i.e. until the next year’s Ganesh Chaturthi.
Lalbaugcha Raja Ganesha is one of the most popular Ganeshotsav Mandals in Mumbai as well as in India. Lalbaugcha Raja Ganpati is one of the most popular Ganesh Mandals in Mumbai and is considered most visited Ganeshotsav Mandali in the city. Nearly 25 Lakh devotees visit the Ganesh Mandal and have darshan of Lalbaugcha Raja Ganpati every year.
