Uttarakhand: Yatra to three dhams to resume by Sept 30
Zee Media Bureau
Dehradun: Nearly a month after floods ravaged several parts of Uttarakhand and disrupted the Char Dham yatra, Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna said on Wednesday that pilgrimage to Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri will resume by September 30.
This is the first time that the state government has announced plans to resume the pilgrimage to the Himalayan shrines since the floods ravaged the state on June 16.
Bahuguna, who visited Guptkashi in Rudraprayag district yesterday, assured the flood-affected families that pilgrimage to Gangotri, Yamunotri and Badrinath will resume by September 30 by which time the BRO hopes to restore the routes to these Himalayan shrines, an official release said today.
The BRO authorities have assured the government that damaged roads leading to these famous shrines will be fully repaired by September 30 when the annual pilgrimage can be resumed, the chief minister said.
He said the NDRF is busy removing the debris from Kedarnath on a war footing and the progress will be reviewed every ten days.
