The budget for the Mahakumbh preparations to be held in the pilgrimage city Haridwar next year has been met, now it is the turn to show power to complete the construction work on time. There is also a big challenge to complete construction works on the time during the Corona period. At the same time, the government claims that all the works of Kumbh will be completed ahead of time.
For the Mahakumbh 2021, a budget of 405 crores has been released by the Urban Development Department for all temporary and permanent construction works including faith paths, footbridges, footpaths, over bridges, roads, drinking water, parking. At the same time, the state government has received a budget of 365 crores for the preparation of Kumbh from the Center. However, the financial assistance of five thousand crores was demanded by the government.
The government hopes to get more budget from the Center. The state government has given 405 crores from its own resources for the construction for Kumbh. Construction departments have received the budget, but with the Corona period, there is a big challenge to complete these works on time. There is less time left for next year’s Mahakumbh. In such a situation, there is a need to show strength to accelerate the construction work.
All the functions of Mahakumbh will be completed before the event. Constructions are being continuously monitored at the government and departmental levels. I am also doing a physical inspection of the construction works personally. A budget of 405 crores has been given by the state government for the preparation of Kumbh with its financial resources.
