While speaking to the media, Adityanath said, "With the Centre and state's support, I am certain Kumbh, which is the world biggest spiritual and cultural festival, will be a grand success. Both central and state government have together developed the infrastructure for the mela. A major part of the work will be done by December 15. Prime Minister will come to Prayagraj for the opening of the Kumbh."
The 45-day festival will start on January 15, 2019.
Millions of Hindu devotees attend the mela with the belief that taking a dip in the waters of the holy river will cleanse their sins.
