Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday stirred a massive row with his remarks hitting out at Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath after he took a dip at the Sangam at Prayagraj, where the Kumbh Mela is underway. Tharoor posted a photo of the UP CM wading through the Ganges, and wrote, "Ganga bhi swaach rakhne hai aur paap bhi yahan dhone hain. Iss Sangam me sabhi nange hain! Jai Ganga Maiya." (Ganga needs to be kept clean, and sins also need to be washed here. Everyone is naked in this Sangam!) \u0917\u0902\u0917\u093e \u092d\u0940 \u0938\u094d\u0935\u091a\u094d\u091b \u0930\u0916\u0928\u0940 \u0939\u0948 \u0914\u0930 \u092a\u093e\u092a \u092d\u0940 \u092f\u0939\u0940\u0902 \u0927\u094b\u0928\u0947 \u0939\u0948\u0902\u0964 \u0907\u0938 \u0938\u0902\u0917\u092e \u092e\u0947\u0902 \u0938\u092c \u0928\u0902\u0917\u0947 \u0939\u0948\u0902! \u091c\u092f \u0917\u0902\u0917\u093e \u092e\u0948\u092f\u093e \u0915\u0940! pic.twitter.com\/qAmHThAJjD \u2014 Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) January 29, 2019 The Uttar Pradesh CM and his entire cabinet took a dip at the holy Sangam on Tuesday.
