Mumbai, Sep 14 (UNI) Maharashtra Governor S M Krishna greeted the people on the occasion of Ganeshotsav here today.
In his message, the Governor said, ''Ganeshotsav, the festival of joy has arrived. I extend my heartiest greetings to the people for a very happy Ganeshotsav.'' He further said, ''Lokmanya Tilak, the visionary leader, had started the Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav with a view to bring people together for the lofty goal of securing Swaraj. During the last 114 years, Ganeshotsav has not only fulfilled its intended objective, but has also fostered the spirit of unity and brotherhood among the people. The festival is therefore an occasion to also remember Lokmanya Tilak with gratitude and to commit ourselves to the cause of nation building. May Lord Ganesh grant peace, happiness and prosperity to the people.'' UNI
