Kumbh Mela 2019 Highlights: Devotees Take Holy Dip In Sangam In UP
Jan 15, 2019 14:37:29 (IST)
UP religious affairs minister Laxmi Narayan Chaudhary has claimed that it's perhaps for the first time since Independence that proper arrangements (of milk, ghee, food, blankets and firewood) have been made for the seers, ashrams and akharas.  

"Nearly 350 years ago, the name of Prayagraj -- considered a prominent centre of Hindu culture and Sanatan Dharma -- was changed to Allahabad. However, last year, under the leadership of UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, it was decided that Allahabad should be renamed as Prayagraj, as mentioned in ancient Indian texts including the Vedas." 

"And it is after 350 long years that the world''s biggest spiritual congregation is being held in Prayagraj in the form of Kumbh Mela," he said.
