During the Kumbh Mela held in Haridwar, a large number of devotees are continuously coming from all over the country. Haridwar is also witnessing an increase in the number of infected patients continuously during this event held in the coronary. In view of this, today only Prime Minister Narendra Modi and then Acharya Mahamandaleshwar Swami Awadheshanand appealed to the people not to come in large numbers in the Kumbh Mela. Mahamandaleshwar Swami Awadheshanand tweeted through social media and appealed to the devotees to protect life more than coming to Kumbh in large numbers. Therefore, all the devotees should follow the Corona Guideline and avoid coming to Kumbh in large numbers.
Demand for postponement was starting to ariseMahamandaleshwar said in his tweet, ‘We respect the call of Hon’ble Prime Minister. Protecting life is a great virtue. My Dharma Parayana urges the public not to go for a bath and discharge the rules in large numbers in view of the circumstances of Kovid. Let me tell you that in Haridwar, during the Kumbh Mela, more than 31 lakh and 14 lakh devotees, respectively, had taken a dip in the Ganges at the two royal bathing programs. Earlier this week, after the arrival of more than 1000 Corona positive cases in Haridwar for two consecutive days, there was a demand to postpone the Kumbh-like event from all over the country.
