Praising the syncretic culture and inclusivity of Kashmir, Governor Satya Pal Malik said people of Kashmir play important role in making Amarnath yatra a success.
“There is no place anywhere in the country where Muslim pilgrims leave for Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj and simultaneously Hindu yatris arrive for Darshan of Shiv Lingam. All this happens peacefully with the full support of local people who arrange everything with joy and satisfaction,” he said.
Talking to media-persons at the picturesque tourist resort Pahalgam, Governor said it is the local population who play a major role in conducting the pilgrimage successfully.
The Governor visited Pahalgam and Chandanwari on Thursday to take stock of the ongoing Amarnath yatra.
“No doubt security forces and the administration leave no stone unturned to provide all necessary arrangements for the yatra but the local people including Muslims and Hindus make the pilgrimage successful,” he added.
“Without their active participation it is not possible to make Amarnath yatra a successful pilgrimage,” he said.
“I am sure this year both Amarnath Yatra and Hajj pilgrimage will conclude happily and successfully. May Allah will bestow his blessing on Hajj pilgrims”, he added.
Replying a question regarding the ban on Jammu-Srinagar National highway, Malik said there is no ban on the movement of civilian traffic. “Restrictions are in place to regulate the traffic on the highway to avoid any traffic jam on the main road,” he said.
“I have ordered setting up special camps for making available all essentials to Yatrais. People are very happy with the arrangement and I hope it remains the same till the last day of the Yatra,” he added.
Asked about the pendency of hundreds of files in GAD, Governor said: “I am making efforts towards transparency and accountability in the system. I am working in the direction to get an application developed so that the file movement can be easily tracked by public”.
Replying to a question that vigilance department has produced reports on many corruption cases and why action has not been taken, Governor Malik said, “We are working on that”.
Meanwhile, an official spokesperson said Governor visited Nunwan Base Camp in Anantnag district on Thursday and chaired a high-level meeting to review the arrangements for Amarnath Yatra 2019.
“Deputy Commissioner Anantnag through a power point presentation apprised Governor about the arrangements made by various departments including PDA, Health, PHE, PDD, FCS&CA, R&B, Labour, Forest, Municipality, for the smooth conduct of the ongoing Yatra. He informed that three additional transit camps have been established this year at Jawahar Tunnel, Gulab Bagh and Qazigund and oxygen cylinders along with portable oxygen facilities, stretchers, life saving drugs have been made available en route to the Holy Cave,” the spokesperson said.
“Governor directed focussed attention on maintaining sanitation & cleanliness, potable drinking facilities, power supply, availability of basic essentials and proper healthcare facilities, at transit camps and halting stations and also on the entire track. He emphasized that strict monitoring of sanitation arrangements be ensured for the proper disposal of all bio-degradable and non- biodegradable wastes and further directed the Camp Director and other functionaries of the Board to particularly ensure effective sanitary arrangements in respect of the functioning of toilets / bath units and, cleaning of the Camp area.He impressed upon the officers to work with added zeal and better coordination for the successful conduct of the Yatra 2019,” the spokesperson said.
“Earlier Governor inspected health centres of J&K Health Department and AYUSH and enquired about facilities being provided to the Yatris. He also interacted with the Yatris and service providers and visited the exhibition stalls of Handicrafts & Handloom and other Government departments,” he added.
