Kumbh Mela resounding success because of PM: Yogi

In an interview today, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said while he cannot talk to Prime Minister Narendra Modi everyday, he looks up to the latter for guidance when big decisions must be taken

New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has shared the ‘secret’ of the much-appreciated Kumbh Mela of this year. In an interview with television channel News18 on Wednesday, the chief minister said that it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had given him the idea of an elaborate ​​and yet successful celebration of the festival.

Yogi Adityanath said, “The Prime Minister drew my attention to Kumbh and said, ‘In 2019, it has to be organised on a grand scale.’ We had a year and a half to prepare for it. He had expressed a desire to make it global.”

Adityanath also expressed his plan to include the Kumbh Mela in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List. He said that his government was thinking about making this event global following the prime minister’s dream.

‘World praised Kumbh Mela, 2019’

Yogi said that, on 9 May, the prime minister had said that India had been praised globally for the best administration of Kumbh, the world’s largest religious confluence. Modi said at an election rally in Prayagraj that crores of people from all over the world had come to Kumbh. At the congregation, Modi had reportedly said, the government had made such a smooth system that the world was praising India.

Modi had inaugurated all plans and programmes related to Kumbh. He had said that successfully organising the world record-making event would build the right image of the country. Such events create a good image of Uttar Pradesh as well, he had told Yogi Adityanath.

The religious-cultural event was held in Prayagraj from 5 January to 4 March.

Yogi further said, “It is my privilege that the Kumbh started with the worship of the Ganga performed by Prime Minister Modi. All the schemes and programmes related to Kumbh were inaugurated by him.”

‘I take guidance from PM before taking big decisions’

“It was great that the prime minister was present at the conclusion of the Kumbh Mela, too, where he praised our cleanliness, security and administration. He washed the feet of sanitation workers and set a great example before the whole country,” Yogi said during the interview. When asked about his relationship with the prime minister, the chief minister said, “We don’t talk on a day-to-day basis, but when I must make big decisions, I follow his guidance.”
