As per media report CM of Uttar Pradesh Shri Yogi Adityanath said :
Finding inspiration in Yajurveda mantra ‘Om Poornamadah Poornamidam…’, chief minister Aditya Nath Yogi has decided to celebrate 2019 Ardh Kumbh as Kumbh. The government has decided to change the nomenclature of the mega religious congregations and now Ardh Kumbh, held every six years, would be called Kumbh and Kumbh, organised every 12 years, would be termed Maha Kumbh.
Speaking after the release of the Kumbh 2019’s logo on Tuesday, the chief minister said: “This mantra from the Vedas says that there is nothing incomplete in the Hindu religion. Everything is complete in its own sense and therefore, the word ‘Ardh’ doesnt gel with the philosophy. So, we would be dropping the word ‘Ardh’ and celebrate Kumbh 2019.” Believed to be started by Adi Shankaracharya, the Kumbh marks congregation of all schools of thoughts associated with the Sanatan Dharma in Allahabad, Haridwar and Triyambakeshwar Nasik or Ujjain. The previous Kumbh was held in Allahabad in 2013.
