Ujjain : Central Simhastha Fair Organising Committee (CSFOC) Chairman, Makhan Singh said that media should work with team spirit to make the Simhastha Fair a grand success. It requires careful attention over the media report to deal with many sensitive issues during the hosting of Simhastha. All the development works will be finished before time.
Singh was addressing District and Divisional Media Workshop organized by Public Relations Department at Hotel Anju Shree Inn on Indore Road, here on Wednesday. Journalists from tehsils and districts of the division were present. Divisional Commissioner Ravindra Pastor addressing the workshop told that infrastructural development has been done at large scale around the city to ensure facility, service and safety at Simhastha Fair. The development works had been initiated 3 years ago. All the works will be finished by the end of February. 16 departments are linked with the Simhastha. Administration had been holding standup meetings to monitor over the development works for last one year.
Dr Pastor also told that Media persons had imparted their suggestions at the meetings occasionally. Management of Simhastha has been done without disturbing the tradition using the new technology. Administrative officials had visited Nasik and Allahabad to equip with the arrangements done for the hosting of Simhastha Fair. The report of the quality of potable and bathing water will be shown on the LED display at the Fair. Moreover, the administration has planned the biometric attendance and briefing of the employees. No untrained employee will be appointed at Simhastha. Around 12000 employees will be deployed. Very call centers will be opened. Skilled students of the colleges will be rendering their services at those centers. They will be given a list of 6000 FAQs to respond the visitors.
Dr Pastor urged media persons for doing the branding of Simhastha Fair. He also gave the significance of the location of Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlingam which tells that it is the ancient center of counting of the time. IG V Madhukumar highlighted the objective of the police and told that police would work on the motto of ‘incident free accident free’ during the Simhastha. Only a single incident is enough to create a bad name for the city. Police department had done a foolproof planning to host the confluence of faith and devotion, the Simhastha Fair. Around 21000 cops will be deployed.
Fair Officer Avinash Lavania told that the use of information technology will make the management of the Fair smart. He told that all the documents were non-computerized when the old record was searched. The maps were prepared using GIS. QR codes were used for allotment of the plots circulating a certificate. It all makes the works easy and feasible for the coming years. A Simhastha App will be released very soon. It will be laced with maps, GPS tracking system and other features. OSD Pushpendra Pal Singh in his address told that the reporting of Simhastha would be different from the common one. All media persons should work with responsibility. They should look everything with positive point of view.
