Uttar Pradesh: Money now being spent on teerths, unlike kabristans earlier, says Yogi in Mathura.

Alleging that the previous governments in Uttar Pradesh spent money on building the boundaries of kabristans (graveyards), Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that his government has been spending money on developing Hindu pilgrim centres (teerths).

Addressing a public event in Mathura, where he announced projects worth Rs 201 crore, the chief minister said: “Earlier, money was given to secure the boundaries of kabristan (burial grounds) and not for the development of pilgrimages. Now, rituals are being organised on a grand scale and the saints are given respect. The Kumbh is a great example of reliving a 5,000-year-old tradition.” He also hit out at the Opposition over the Ram temple construction in Ayodhya and said that it would not have become reality if there were any other government in the state.
