He said the festival teaches us the righteousness of knowledge, achievement of goals, moral values and conservation of nature. He wanted people to celebrate it with joy and peace and spread harmony.
Mr. Rao said that despite hurdles created by other forces, the State Government was implementing welfare and development programmes aiming at the well-being of all sections of people with the blessings of Lord Ganesha.
He prayed that people lead a happy and peaceful life, pursue tasks continuously and wished that Lord Ekadanta would shower his blessings on all.
Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan also greeted people on Ganesh Chaturthi. “I extend festive greetings and wishes to all the people of Telangana State and others on the auspicious occasion of Vinayak Chaturthi. Devotees offer prayers to Lord Ganesha to remove hurdles for the success of their endeavours. It is customary to offer initial prayers to Lord Vigneswara before starting any work for successful completion. I pray and wish that Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles, will clear all the hurdles in our path to unity, peace, progress and prosperity of our State and nation. I cordially wish you all.
