Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said that as compared to 2013, Kumbh 2019 had witnessed twice the number of devotees.

“I did not know that Kumbh would be held in 2019. When I met Pm Modi, he told me that Kumbh should be organized as a modern generation event. In 2013, 12 crore devotees had come for the Kumbh. This year, double that number of devotees came to the Kumbh. What’s even better is that there was no major mishap during the event. Not only this, this event was established as a cultural heritage in UNESCO,” Yodi Adityanath said in an interview to Hindustan.

CM Yogi Adityanath said, “This time, 3200 non-resident Indians from 70 countries bathed in Kumbh. More than 15 High Court judges including governors and chief ministers also reached Kumbh. This time the people of 24 crore people took bath in the Ganga.”

He said, “When Allahabad (old name) was there, everyone felt that this (Kumbh Mela) is being organized as a general event. But, when we renamed the city to Prayagraj it became a matter of curiosity for people all over the world. Nearly 44 million people came to witness the Kumbh. This proves that we have this immense potential.” _ht
