The second wave of corona has created a frightening situation in the country. The rate of corona infection has increased tremendously and various measures are being taken. On the other hand, concerns are being expressed over the ongoing Kumbh Mela in Haridwar. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for an end to the Kumbh Mela amid fears of a major outbreak. After Modi’s appeal, the Congress leader has expressed his satisfaction.
Corona has infiltrated the Kumbh Mela and a large number of patients are being found. Many sadhus and devotees have been infected and some akhadas have announced their return from Kumbh Mela. Meanwhile, on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a symbolic end to the Kumbh Mela. After this appeal, Congress leader Sanjay Nirumap has taken aim by tweeting.
“Well done, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to end the Kumbh Mela. If someone else had done it, he would have been declared anti-Hindu. Till yesterday, 49 lakh people have taken bath. Nirumap has appealed to Swami Awadheshanand Giri to end the Kumbh Mela immediately.
What did Modi say?
Acharya Mahamandleshwar spoke to Swami Awadheshananda Giri on the phone today. Learned about the nature of all the saints. All the saints are cooperating with the administration to the best of their ability. I thanked the saints for this. At the same time, I requested that the two royal baths be held and that the Kumbh Mela be held in a symbolic manner due to the crisis in Corona. This will give strength to fight the crisis, ”Modi appealed.
शुक्र है प्रधानमंत्री मोदी ने कुंभ समाप्त करने की अपील की।— Sanjay Nirupam (@sanjaynirupam) April 17, 2021
और कोई करता तो उसे हिंदू द्रोही कह दिया जाता।
कल तक 49 लाख लोग स्नान कर चुके हैं।
कोलकाता तक जाने वाली गंगा पता नहीं कितने #कोरोना लेकर कहाँ तक ले जाएगी।
कुंभ तत्काल संपन्न होना ही चाहिए।@AvdheshanandG से सादर निवेदन है।
