ALLAHABAD, INDIA, December 15, 2000: Saints of various religious orders are upset with the mela administrators, alleging discrimination in allotment of land. They say fake saint committees have been given land, and object to the construction of 5-star facilities for foreigners and VIPS, which they said was against the religious sentiments linked with the Mela. For example, one camp is charging foreigners US$100 per day per person.
