On October 26 and 27, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Club (Cambridge) has whole heartedly invited Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis along with his team to attend a conference on Kumbh Mela management in Boston. The main objective of inviting the Chief Minister is to understand that the state government was able to see off lakhs of pilgrims after three holy bathing, each at Ramkund and Trimbakeshwar.
Among other invitees are the mayor of Nashik Ashok Murtadak, deputy mayor Gurmeet Bagga, divisional commissioner Eknath Davle, district collector Deependrasingh Kushwah, municipal commissioner Praveen Gedam and commissioner of police S Jagannathan.
For the effective management of the crowd the USA-based MIT congratulated the Chief Minister and team of officials including the guardian minister Girish Mahajan. The press release cited, “Kumbh Mela was organized very neatly for around two crore of pilgrims who visited the Kumbh over time while implementing the Green Kumbh concept.”
An official said, “It is a matter of pride for us that the American university has taken cognizance of our work in the Kumbh Mela. The chief minister will not be able to attend the conference but Mahajan will lead the rest of the delegation and attend the programme. Along with the successful organisation of Kumbh Mela, presentation on various programmes for Smart City project will also be given. The delegation will also be attending discussions on various topics.”
