"The plans related to Kumbh Mela should reach the Home ministry within two days so that proper planning can be done for their effective implementation," Rajan has been quoted to have said at the meeting held at the district collectorate, by official sources.
He directed the city police chief Kulwant Kumar Sarangal and rural police chief Praveen Padawal to handle law and order at the event to prevent any untoward incident at Sadhugram as well as during the royal processions which mark the jamboree.
During 2003 Kumbh Mela in Nashik, at least 39 persons, including 26 women, had died in a stampede on a narrow road leading to river Godavari.
Meanwhile, Divisional Commissioner Ravindra Jadhav asked PWD officials to construct a concrete road to Neel Parvat in Trimbakeshwar as the Kumbh Mela falls in monsoon season.
