Prayagraj, Jan 29 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and many of his ministerial colleagues took the holy dip at Sangam -- the trinity of Ganga, Yamuna and the mystical Saraswati -- at the ongoing Kumbh on Tuesday.
Soon after finishing the cabinet meeting, the ministers led by the saffron-robed Chief Minister went to the holy confluence of rivers and amid the popping of flash bulbs, wide-eyed common people and frenzied lensmen, took the dip.
The Chief Minister was accompanied in the ritual by Deputy Chief Ministers Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya, state Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tandon, Health Minister and local legislator Siddhartha Nath Singh, Agriculture Minister and party veteran Surya Pratap Shahi and Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta 'Nandi'.
