The fair was boycotted in Kumbh 2013, Shankaracharya was always in discussion about controversies

Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati also remained in the discussion due to his statements. Swami Swaroopanand has always been in discussion about the statements made on Shankar Chatushpath, fake Shankaracharya, Sai Baba. Shankaracharya, who got angry in a moment on the wrong thing, had even announced the boycott of Prayagraj Kumbh Mela in 2013 for ignoring the governance and administration. Later, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, during his visit to Prayagraj, requested that the pride of Kumbh is Shankaracharya, then Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati came to the fair.

There was a long trial in the court between Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati and Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust member Swami Vasudevanand Saraswati regarding Jyotishpeeth. In 1973, Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati was made the declared Peethadheeshwar of Jyotishpeeth for the first time. In the 2013 Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, the dispute between him and Swami Vasudevanand Saraswati and Swami Narendranand Saraswati of Kashi Sumerupeeth deepened.

The rhetoric began to increase and Shankaracharya Swaroopanand came into the discussion on the removal of Swami Vasudevananda’s camp from Shankar Chatushpath in the Mela area. When former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav announced to build a Ghat like Har Ki Paidhi in Prayagraj, Shankaracharya Swaroopanand first opposed it. He said that everyone’s footsteps can be there, just like that, ghats cannot be built everywhere.

When he boycotted the entry into the fair, all the sages and saints started humiliating him. After this, the head of the state celebrated, then consider the Shankaracharya. After this, once again in the Magh Mela of 2018, he had boycotted the entry of Jyotishpeeth on the issue of land.

This time his camp was held but Shankaracharya went from Mankameshwar temple to Sangam by motor boat for bath. Never set foot in the camp located in the fair area. His statement about fake Shankaracharyas was always in the news. In Prayagraj he invited the so-called Shankaracharyas for debate.
