Idol makers' livelihood affected for not getting orders ahead of Ganesh Chaturthi

The businesses of idol makers have been affected badly in Tamil Nadu's Madurai amid coronavirus pandemic.

Ganesh idols makers haven't got any orders ahead of Ganesh Chaturthi this year.

The businesses of idol makers have gone down in Vilacheri Village of Madurai district due to COVID-19 outbreak.

They are dependent on festivals in order to earn their livelihood.

While speaking to ANI, an idol maker Alagar said, "Every year we get orders for big idols but this year due to COVID-19 restriction we didn't get any order." "We are facing difficulties as we depend on festivals for our livelihood.

This year we are making small idols but we are not sure if we can sell them in the market," he added.

There are over 57,070 active cases of COVID-19 in Tamil Nadu.
