Metal sheds and advertisement boards will be removed before early morning hours on Thursday and the welders, carpenters will detach the other idols from the main idol.”

Every year it repairs the same vehicle and places the 50-tonne gigantic Ganesh idol on it with the help of a crane.The Ganesh shobayatra will be carried on the trolley during the procession. In the last four years height of the idol has gone up to 61 feet from 56 feet.
