Maharashtra Government is expected to give its nod to celebrate Dahi Handi festival on August 19 without any restrictions. The excitement amongst Govinda pathaks (groups) is immense with many groups starting their practice to form human pyramids two to three months in advance.
The MNS, which has always aggressively rooted for Dahi Handi and Ganpati celebrations, will be giving insurance cover of Rs 100 crore for 1000 Govindas for free. The decision was announced via a tweet by MNS leader Gajanan Kale and the party will be starting registration from August 15 for the same. According to this insurance cover, any Govinda who unfortunately loses his life, the immediate family members will get Rs 10 lakh and if a Govinda suffers injuries and needs hospitalization, a cover of Rs 1 lakh will be provided.
