Balapur Ganesh Laddu sold for a whopping Rs 17.6 lakh
As Ganesh Chavithi came to an end, the famous Balapur Ganesh Laddu was auctioned on the streets of Balapur which saw many residents and popular celebrities take part in it.
Many people took part in the auction and Kolan Ram Reddy won the Laddu when he bought the Laddu for Rs 17.6 lakh, which is one lakh higher than last year’s amount Rs 16.6 lakh.
After winning the 21-kilogram Laddu, Ram climbed on to the vehicle carrying Ganesh idol and placed the Laddu on his head, thereby paying respects to the respectable god.
Balapur Ganesh Utsav Samithi office bearers including K Niranjan presented the garland to Kolan Ram on winning the Laddu. He is an industrialist and is survived by a son and a daughter.
