Kumbh should be now symbolic in corona crisis, tweets PM Modi amid rising cases

New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi took Twitter and informed that he spoke to Swami Avdheshanand Giri over the telephone and requested that Kumbh Mela should now only be symbolic in the wake of the COVID19 pandemic, now that two shahi snans have concluded.

“Now that two royal baths have taken place, I appeal to everyone to keep Kumbh Mela symbolic due to the coronavirus crisis. This will give strength to India’s fight against the virus,” PM Modi tweeted in Hindi.

Over the last five days, a total of 2167 people were found positive for coronavirus in Haridwar — the place where the month-long Kumbh is going on.

According to the Uttarakhand State Control Room, there were 254 COVID-19 positive cases on April 10, 386 on April 11, 408 on April 12, 594 on April 13 and 525 on April 14.
