The road from Shiv Murti to the Haridwar Railway Station will be named after ascetic Shyam Sundar Das who passed away a fortnight ago. Annoucing this at a ceremony held to pay tribute to the departed ascetic, Urban Development minister Madan Kaushik also said that a Ganga Ghat will also be developed in his memory. Addressing the gathering of ascetics and social workers at Gareeb Dasiya Ashram in Bhupatwala, the head of Juna Akhada Mahamandaleshwar Avdheshanand Giri said, Shyam Sundar Das was a ‘Yug Purush’ who dedicated his life in the propagation of Sanskrit and Indian culture and welfare of the people.
He said that the State Government should also make a ‘Prerna Sthal’ in the Kumbh Mela of 2021 where ascetics can be given Bhu-Samadhi. Paying tribute to the seer, Kaushik said that the departed ascetic’s main aim was dissemination of Indian culture and Vedic Sanskriti. His role in nation building will always be remembered. He announced re-christening of railway road and Ganga Ghat near Rishikul after his name Shyamsundar Das Shastri Ganga Ghat.
