गंगा भी स्वच्छ रखनी है और पाप भी यहीं धोने हैं। इस संगम में सब नंगे हैं!

The case follows Shashi Tharoor’s tweet on Wednesday where he said, “(You) want to keep the Ganga clean and also (your) sins. Everyone is naked in this confluence.”
For the first time a cabinet meeting of the state had taken place outside Lucknow. The UP government’s cabinet met at Prayagraj amidst the Kumbha Mela.
Shashi Tharoor is an MP from Thiruvananthapuram. He served as the Minister of State for Human Resource Development in the UPA-II government.
