Uttarakhand CM reviews arrangements for last royal bath
Dehradun: Ahead of the last royal bath at
the ongoing Mahakumbh mela in Haridwar, Uttarakhand Chief
Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank reviewed the facilities and
asked officials to make proper arrangements for the pilgrims.
Reviewing arrangements ahead of the fourth and last royal
bath on April 14, Nishank yesterday directed officials to
arrange city buses in sufficient number at Haridwar to ferry
pilgrims from parking spots to the bathing ghats.
In this regard, he also asked the Principal Secretary to
shift the General Manager of Transport to Haridwar till the
Mahakumbh is over, an official release said.
Referring to the fire incident in Mahakumbh mela in which
two women were killed last week, the chief minister asked the
officials to take precautionary measures in this regard.
The three-month long Mahakumbh mela that began on January
14 would culminate on April 14.
