Governor reviews arrangements
Jammu, Apr 18: Governor, N N Vohra, on Thursday chaired a series of meetings to review the status of arrangements related to the Amarnath Yatra 2012, an official spokesman said.
He said the Governor had a detailed review of the security arrangements being made for the Yatra. “He also sought the to-date status of the action taken to implement the recommendations of High Level Committee which was set up on the directions of the Governor and the Chief Minister after last year’s Yatra, particularly those relating to the opening and clearing of tracks along both the routes to the Shrine,” the spokesman said.
Among the decisions taken it was agreed that the PWD would immediately approach the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways for taking up the project for improvement and upgradation of Baltal- Cave route and the time bound execution of this project through the Border Roads Organization.
The Governor directed the CEO of the SASB to urgently visit Pahalgam and Baltal to assess the status of the snowmelt and preparatory work for undertaking various works related to the forthcoming Yatra.
