The wrestlers are demanding action against Brijbushan Sharan Singh, accused of sexually harassing women players.
Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar will officially inaugurate the festival with Gita Yajna and worship at Brahma Sarovar on the same day. Following this, Dhankhar will also inaugurate the three-day International Gita Seminar at Kurukshetra University. The CM expressed confidence that this seminar will play a pivotal role in spreading the significance of the Gita’s message across the globe.
Khattar said the International Gita Mahotsav Fair is progressing towards financial self-sustainability. In a strategic move akin to the organisation of the Kumbh Mela, a dedicated fair authority will be established for the International Gita Mahotsav.
This autonomous body will independently organize and manage the event. The government will appoint a fair officer to oversee the arrangements, while the fair authority will take charge of planning and executing the festival.
The CM said the International Gita Mahotsav will kick off with a Crafts and Saras mela on the banks of the holy Brahmasarovar of Kurukshetra on 7 December. This fair will showcase the talents of nationally renowned artists and craftsmen.
