New Delhi: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Saturday said that the J&K government was committed to providing world-class facilities for Amarnath yatris, besides facilitating Langars and Bhandaras during the yatra to the cave shrine.
“The holy yatra is a symbol of compassion, spirituality, service, and peace. Continuous efforts are being made to make the yatra more comfortable, modern, and safe for the yatris,” an official spokesman in a statement issued here quoted the LG while interacting with the members of various associations of Langars and Bhandaras, which serve the yatris during the annual Amarnath yatra.
The spokesman said that the LG informed the representatives of the associations about the substantial upgradation of facilities and infrastructure development for the Yatris achieved in the past two years.
He said that LG told them that three Yatri Niwas were being created to provide better boarding and lodging facilities to yatris on way to the cave shrine that include Chandarkote Yatri Niwas coming up at Ramban, which would provide accommodation to around 3200 yatris, besides Jammu Yatri Niwas and Srinagar Yatri Niwas with accommodation of 3000 and 2250 yatris.
The spokesman said that 20 members representing Shri Amarnath Burfani Langars Organisation (SABLO) and Shri Amarnath Yatra Bhandara Organisation (SAYBO) met the LG and discussed various aspects of the smooth conduct of the yatra with him.
