Yatra to continue till October, don't plan journey in rush: Uttarakhand police

Dehradun: Amid an unprecedented rush of Char Dham pilgrims, police have urged people to plan their journey "with ease and not in a hurry" as the yatra would continue till October. The development comes in the wake of a large number of pilgrims continuing to throng Uttarakhand to undertake the much revered Char Dham yatra since the opening of portals of the four shrines- Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri, and Gangotri - earlier this month. According to government data, a total of 5.2 lakh pilgrims visited the Char Dham shrines till Sunday.
State director general of police (DGP) Ashok Kumar while urging the people to make their plans after "properly assessing all aspects" said, "The Char Dham Yatra will continue till October. Hence, I request the people to not make their plans in a hurry as such plans always cause discomfort." The officer added, "People can undertake the yatra after June as well, This way, they will have ample time to visit the shrines without any inconvenience. It will also lessen problems for aged people as they won't have to deal with the rush."
Another senior police officer involved in monitoring the arrangements made for the pilgrims while speaking on the condition of anonymity said, "The involvement of PMO has now alerted the system. We are ensuring that no more pilgrim death takes place during the yatra. We all want pilgrims to have a memorable experience," the police officer said while adding that booking slots for the Char Dham yatra are full till May 29.
Meanwhile, DGP Kumar said, "There has been an increase of about 20% in the number of Char Dham pilgrims during this season (so far) in comparison to the past two years. However, police are fully prepared to handle the rush and ensure that pilgrims don't face any issues.
