Prime Minister Narendra Modi today took a holy dip in the river Ganges during the ongoing Kumbh Mela in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj and offered his prayers at the Sangam, the holy confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati.

PM Modi wore a robe as he stepped into the water with folded hands in a specially marked area. He changed to a saffron kurta and shawl, and performed an aarti at the Triveni Ghat. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath accompanied PM Modi.

The Prime Minister prayed amid chanting of hymns and later offered some ‘dakshina‘ to the priests.

“Had the good fortune of taking a holy dip at the #Kumbh. Prayed for the well being of 130 Crore Indians (sic),” PM Modi tweeted.

A scared thread was tied to his right wrist as a symbol of blessings. The Prime Minister also honoured sanitation workers at the Swachh Kumbh Swachh Aabhaar event, organised by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation. He was seen washing the feet of a group of sanitation workers as a mark of respect.

On February 14, BJP president Amit Shah took a holy dip at the Kumbh Mela. He also visited the Sangam and offered his prayers. He also performed an aarti at the Triveni Ghat.

As soon as the video released in PM Modi’s twitter account, Tamil speaking twitter users started to trend it in literally a negative way. The hashtag said  (“Wont this be washed away by the River?”)
