While a section of heads of akharas have proposed to the state government that the ritual be held here, Khalsa Council President and Mangalpeethadheeshwar Swami Madhavacharya has objected to it saying it did not conform to the tradition.

In a Cabinet meeting held on May 2, Uttrakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat had said they will go ahead with the decision taken by the sadhus consensually and added that they do not want to
disturb the traditions.

The Shahi Snan (Auspicious Bath) is a ritual and there is a fray among akhanras to attain the first bath.
