After getting flaks for the Kumbh Mela, the government does not want to rush to start the Char Dham Yatra
The state government of Uttarakhand, which has been grilled for holding the Kumbh amid the Corona crisis, is now not in a hurry to start the Chardham Yatra. 2 sadhus are sitting on fast for not getting permission to visit Char Dham. Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat has clearly said that the journey of Char Dham will start only after the situation becomes normal.
Taking a lesson from Kumbh, the Tirath Rawat government is no longer in any hurry to start the Chardham Yatra. Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj has clearly said that only after Corona control the government will consider starting the journey of Char Dham including Badrinath and Kedarnath.
Yatra will start after corona control
Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat said that the first focus of the government is on controlling corona infection. He said that the doors of the Char Dhams have been opened on time, but the yatra will be started only after the situation becomes normal. CM said that the condition of Corona in the country is not very good, so it would not be appropriate to start the journey now.
He said that a large number of devotees from all over the country and abroad come to Uttarakhand for darshans in such a situation, the possibility of increasing corona infection cannot be ruled out. Tirath Singh Rawat said that as soon as the situation of Corona becomes normal, the government can consider giving conditional permission to the saints living in the dhams for darshan.
At the same time, Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj said that Chardham Yatra will be started only when the situation becomes normal from Corona. For this, first of all, permission will be given to the local people from Uttarkashi, Chamoli and Rudraprayag districts, preparations for which are going on. He said that the corona infection is gradually decreasing in the state and as soon as the situation becomes normal, we will take steps in the direction of travel.
The doors of Char Dham have opened in May itself.
Let us inform you that the doors of the world-famous Gangotri Dham located in Uttarkashi district have opened on May 15, but due to corona infection, devotees have not been allowed to visit while the doors of another world-famous Kedarnath Dham have been opened for the devotees on May 17 but due to the infection, the devotees have not been allowed to have darshan here either. The doors of Chardham are closed every year in October-November with the onset of winter and then opened in April-May next year.
Two sadhus sat on fast for ten days
Due to the Corona crisis, currently, the Rawals, priests, right-holders, no one, including any devotees, travelers, is allowed to visit Chardham. Angered by not being allowed to see God in the Badrinath temple, Mouni Baba and Dharmaraj Bharti started a fast by giving up food on 23 May and later gave up water after not getting permission for darshan. Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj said that Mauni Baba and Baba Dharamvir Bharti, who are fasting in Badrinath Dham, have ended their fast unto death on Wednesday morning, however, the fasting Mouni Baba said that his fast is continuing. There has been no dialogue with Satpal Maharaj in this regard, he said. We accepted “The Charanamrit” Prasad of Lord ji in Badrinath temple premises, which does not break the fast and after this, the fast has continued as before. It has been ten days since the fasting of both the sadhus.
