The Uttar Pradesh Braj Tirth Vikas Parishad (UPBTVP) organised a ‘Vaishnavas’ meeting’ fair in Vrindavan from 14 February before the Haridwar Kumbh. This programme will run for 40 days.
Thousands of saints and devotees from India and abroad participate in the Vrindavan Kumbh meeting. “The pre-Kumbh Vaishno meeting for the Vrindavan Kumbh should proceed with the same grandeur like Prayagraj Kumbh was held,” the CM said.
Adityanath also attended the Yamuna Aarti at Deoraha Baba Ghat in Vrindavan.
For the safety and convenience of attendees, the administration has claimed to have made elaborate arrangements. The Health Department has been alerted about the pre-Kumbh Vaishnav meeting in Vrindavan, Mathura. Three dispensaries will be opened for the saints and devotees coming to the Kumbh meeting. A control room is also being set up.
As per news reports, the dispensary will open 24 hours under the supervision of ACMO Dr PK Gupta in charge of the fair. Emergency arrangements are also being made at the District Joint Hospital in Vrindavan. The dispensary will have emergency wards as well as ambulances to be deployed at the Kumbh Mela.
Additionally, Ganga water will be made available as drinking water to the devotees during the Kumbh Mela. Reportedly, efforts are on to make Ganga water flow for bathing in the Yamuna. A sub-station has also been set up by the Electricity Department for uninterrupted power supply.
