'Kumbh Mela Should Now Only Be Symbolic To Strengthen Covid Fight': PM

Kumbh Mela attracts millions of devotees.

New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning appealed that the mega Kumbh Mela “should now only be symbolic amid coronavirus crisis”, stressing that it will give a boost to the fight against the pandemic. Huge gathering of tens of thousands of pilgrims – along the banks of the Ganga – in the last few days has sparked nationwide concern as India – hit by the second wave – sees an alarming surge in infections.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister said he spoke to top seer – Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha president Swami Avdheshanand Giri Ji Maharaj – over phone and made an appeal about the religious gathering that attracts millions of devotees.
