Kumbh 2021: ‘Sadhus believe in participating symbolically’, says Swami Avdheshanand

Haridwar (Uttarakhand), Apr 17 (ANI): On April 17, Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked to Acharya Mahamandleshwar of Juna Akhada Swami Avdheshanand Giri and appealed Kumbh Mela now should be symbolic amid rising cases of COVID. “PM called me up and inquired about Kumbh and health of sadhus. Most snans are complete, only one remains - of 'bairagis'. Number of sadhus participating in it is very less and they too believe that they should participate symbolically,” said Swami Avdheshanand.
