Devasthanam Board : Tirath entangled on a 'Bill' of former CM Trivendra
A 'Bill' passed by former Uttarakhand CM Trivendra Singh Rawat remains a 'snake' around the neck of Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat
A 'Bill' passed by former Uttarakhand CM Trivendra Singh Rawat remains a 'snake' around the neck of Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat. This bill is directly related to the Char Dham. Ever since Tirath Singh Rawat took over the 'chair', there has been 'pressure' to end this decision of Trivendra Singh.
But till now Tirath is not able to decide on whether to end this bill or let it remain in place. Now let us see what is the whole matter, about which the 'anger' of the pilgrimage priests is increasing. Due to the Corona epidemic, the Char Dham Yatras of Uttarakhand is currently banned. In such a situation, the movement of devotees is not visible at these religious places and the 'protests' are increasing every day.
For a long time, the pilgrimage priests have been continuously protesting to 'dissolve' the 'devasthanam board' in Uttarakhand. This time the priests have protested in a unique way to attract the attention of the Tirath government. They have expressed their anger by circling the Kedarnath temple in the posture of yoga. Kedarnath Teerth Purohit Samaj said that if this board made by the government is not abolished then the protest will be intensified.
In protest against the Devasthanam Board, the priests said that their rights were being "violated" by the formation of this board. About a year ago, the Uttarakhand government had announced the inclusion of Kedarnath Dham in the Devasthanam Board. On which the priests have accused the government of ignoring the interests.
The pilgrimage priests said that the Uttarakhand government is trying to change the worship and travel arrangements of Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri including Kedarnath since ancient times through the Devasthanam Board which we will not tolerate.
At the same time, the pilgrimage priests in Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath Dham have been continuously opposing the Devasthanam Board. He warned that the agitation would continue till the board was dissolved. Purohit Sudhanshu Semwal said that he has been agitating against the Devasthanam Board for the last one and a half years. Despite this, the government is not taking any positive action.
