September 17, 2015 …. Chief Minsiter Shri Laxmikant Parsekar has greeted the people of Goa on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. In his message the Chief Minister said that “Chavath” has arrived. This is a special time in our state where families and friends come together and create an atmosphere of happiness to celebrate this auspicious occasion.
Lord Ganesh is widely worshipped as the God of education, knowledge, wisdom, wealth and destroyer of evils and obstacles. Through his worship, we feel better about life, rising above the lower emotions of insecurity, fear, anger and jealousy and instead experience peace and contentment.
On this auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chathurthi, I extend my best wishes to all his devotees. May Lord Ganapati shower his blessings on the people of the state and may the festival bring peace, prosperity and happiness to all.
The Chief Minister has also appealed to the devotees to co-operate with the police in maintenance of security and other arrangements during the Ganesh festival in the state.
