Dehra Dun: British High Commissioner to
India Sir Richard Stagg on Thursday met Uttarakhand Chief Minister
Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank and congratulated him for
successfully organising the Kumbh mela, one of the largest
religious congregations in the world.

During a meeting at the state secretariat, Sir Stagg
lauded the arrangements made by the state government at the
Kumbh mela venue and said management of such a big crowd at a
small place like Haridwar is really praiseworthy, said an

He told Nishank that people of Britain are also getting
attracted towards Ayurveda and other alternative pathies and
said there is a bright possibility of bilateral cooperation
between his country and Uttarakhand through Government of
India.

cleanse the Ganga through a programme called "Ganga Sparsh"
and said Thames was also purged through the collective
endeavours of the British people.
