Even though the Dahi Handi festival is only a few days away, preparations have started everywhere in Maharashtra. As after two years of Corona, the state government has given permission to celebrate the festival on a large scale. Therefore, excitement is seen in many places regarding this festival. Govinda teams have also started the practise of constructing human towers.

However, after two years, because of the permission to celebrate the festival again without restrictions, accidents are likely to happen in the midst of over-excitement. Due to this, question marks are also being raised regarding Govinda's safety. Every year, many Govindas are injured while celebrating the Dahi Handi festival, with some losing their lives or becoming permanently disabled.

Therefore, political parties like the BJP and MNS have taken the initiative for Govinda's security. Along with organising the Dahi Handi festival, the political parties have decided to provide insurance cover for Govinda. Free insurance for Govinda will be taken out by the BJP and MNS in the state.

The BJP has provided Govinda with a 10 lakh insurance policy.

The BJP has decided to provide an insurance cover of Rs 10 lakh for Govinda. Every year in Dahihandi, many Govindas lose their limbs. That's why BJP Mumbai has decided to provide insurance of 10 lakhs for Govinda on the idea of the Honorable Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. BJP MLA Amit Satam tweeted that Govinda should participate in this.

The Raj Thackeray-led MNS party, which has always taken an aggressive stand for Govinds, will also be giving insurance cover of 100cr for 1000 Govindas for free. For which they are starting registration from August 15th, informed MNS Navi Mumbai Chief Gajanan Kale in a tweet. If any Govinda gets severely injured, then he will receive 10 lakh. If, unfortunately, he loses his life, then his immediate family will get 10 lakh as an insurance amount. And if any govinda gets injured and hospitalisation is necessary, then 1 lakh will be given under this insurance scheme.
