A day after Dalai Lama's proposed visit to Kumbh Mela was cancelled for want of security clearance, a Buddhist outfit on Monday claimed the Tibetan spiritual leader will arrive at the congregation on Tuesday.
The Dalai Lama will visit Kumbh on Tuesday following grant of necessary permission by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Uttar Pradesh government, the Maha Bodhi Society of India said.
"The Maha Bodhi Society of India and various other inter-faith and spiritual groups have been making requests for the permission," B K Modi, former president of the Maha Bodhi Society of India, told reporters here.
Modi, who is also the chairman of the industrial group — Spice Global — said, "It is unfortunate that the necessary permission for the Dalai Lama's travel to the Kumbh Mela could not come in time."
"However, all the permissions are in place today and we expect His Holiness will be here with us at the Kumbh Mela tomorrow," he said.
