Srinagar, July 6: Governor, N N Vohra today asked the police to take immediate steps to regulate the movement of Amarnath yatris in view of the difficulties faced by them and public along the Jammu-Srinagar Highway.
"Concerned to learn about certain difficulties faced by the pilgrims and the public, particularly in regard to heavy traffic on the Highway, Vohra convened an urgent meeting with Director General of Police, Kuldeep Khoda, Principal Secretary Home, B R Sharma, and Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, Chief Executive Officer, R K Goyal," an official spokesman said.
