After Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh it will be the turn of Chhattisgarh, another BJP-ruled state, to hold the next ‘Kumbh’. The announcement was made on the occasion of the three-day Ma Narmada Samajik Kumbh that concluded on the banks of the Narmada on Saturday. Chief Minister Raman Singh was handed over the mantle for the next event that will be organised keeping in mind the tribal population of Orissa, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.
The Sangh Parivar has already declared that the first event held in the Dangs district of Gujarat was a huge success, as the pace of reconversion of Christians to Hinduism gathered momentum after 2006.
At the Mandla meet, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said that the Sangh Parivar did not have enough penetration in Orissa where Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati was murdered in 2008 and alleged that conversions to Christianity had increased since then.
