Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan along with his wife took a holy dip in river Ganga here on Tuesday during the Kumbh Mela.

Kumbh Mela is the largest human congregation in the world, with over 130 million pilgrims expected to participate in the festival with the belief that taking a dip in the holy water of Ganges River will pave the way for their salvation and would rid them of their sins.

BJP president Amit Shah will visit the ongoing Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj on Wednesday to take a holy dip at the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati rivers.

The 55-day long Kumbh Mela will end on March 4.
