The State Government is keen to take the once in 12-year event as an opportunity to start religious and cultural tourism. According to Hindu Mythology, the God Pushkar makes his presence in each river after every 12 years; and it is believed that taking a sacred bath in the rivers, when Pushkar is present, will wipe off all their sins. So, people look for Pushkaralu time to have a sacred bath.
KCR told officials to ensure facilities at bath ghats and renovate temples near them to enable pilgrims to have darshan of gods conveniently. He asked them to run a focused campaign to make people participate in the event. He also asked the officials to devise a massive publicity campaign to attract all Telugus in other states, like in Mumbai and Surat, and abroad to take a holy dip in Godavari during the festival.
