Kumbh Mela was supposed to be held in 2022. What was the compelling political pressure on Govt to reschedule it? : @JhaSanjay , Suspended Congress Leader, tells Rahul Shivshankar on India Upfront. | #KisanAndolanReality
People who empower superstition are actually pushing people towards death. They bear moral responsibility for what happened at the Kumbh Mela. You cannot push superstition at the laity & then declaim responsibility 4 resulting irrational behavior as @RSSorg chief is doing.
This is exactly what he and Amit Shah were doing at their mass rallies in Bengal and at the Kumbh Mela. Localized containment strategies.
During the UPA era there were Commonwealth Games. In our tenure Kumbh took place in Prayagraj. Both were great opportunities to showcase India at the world stage. While the Kumbh is admired universally, CWG Scam brought shame and was an insult to our athletes.
The set notable records. Emphasis on cleanliness & sanitation was visible. A record was set for most number of people sweeping the floors. Records were also set in the fields of transportation and art. Use of technology for administering the Kumbh was commendable.
