Magh Mela: Over 3000 outfits seek land to set up camps

Prayagraj: With barely two weeks left for the Magh Mela 2022, officials have said that over 3000 religious, social and spiritual organizations have sought land to set up their respective camps and shivirs at Magh Mela.

The 47-day Magh mela will commence on January 14 and conclude on March 1 on Mahashivratri day. There will be six main bathing days — Makar Sankranti (January 14/15), Paush Purnima (January 17), Mauni Amavasya (February 1), Basant Panchmi (February 5), Maghi Purnima (February 16) and Mahashivratri (March 1).

Ironically, the divisional commissioner Sanjay Goyal had on Tuesday issued a stern warning to officials of PWD to complete the projects or face the wrath.

Officials said that the problem of soil erosion was still persisting forcing the Magh Mela authorities to make alternate arrangements.

"After facing the problem of soil erosion due to strong current of river water, mela authorities have made the alternate arrangements and camps of different organisations are being shifted to safer places," said District Magistrate (Magh Mela) Shesh Mani Pandey.

He, however, said all sorts of facilities would be given to pilgrims, devotees and visitors in the coming month-long event and all departments were also coordinating with each other and work of setting up 13 police stations and 36 police outposts was also in progress.

This time, Mela administration has decided to engage a joint team of mela officials and third party to verify the facilities being offered to seers, saints, pilgrims, and 'kalpvasis' staying in tents.

The officials claimed that this exercise will help Mela authorities to maintain transparency and ensure that devotees and pilgrims are able to get benefits in terms of facilities and services.
