The Uttar Pradesh government has allotted Rs. 4,300 crore for creating infrastructure necessary to conduct the Kumbh Mela 2019, scheduled to begin from January 15, the state's Minister of Excise and Prohibition Jai Pratap Singh said on Saturday.

The Kumbh Mela is expected to witness an attendance over 20 lakh devotees, he said, adding the whole idea behind the event was to promote ''spiritual tourism''.

Besides stepping up transportation connectivity for devotees to reach the 'Mela' area, over 40,000 LED lights have been installed at the venue, he said.
