Chardham Yatra 2022: The quota of the prescribed number of devotees for three of the Chardham of Uttarakhand, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Kedarnath Dham, has been completed till June 3. With this, registrations have been closed for these three places.
Rishikesh: The quota for the prescribed number of pilgrims for three of the Chardham of Uttarakhand, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Kedarnath has been completed till June 3. Due to this, the registration for these places has been closed for the time being. Meanwhile, the registration of devotees is going on for Badrinath only. Information to this effect was given to the passengers on Thursday by the Uttarakhand State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) at ISBT in Rishikesh through the Public Announcement System.
SDRF personnel present on the spot told that apart from Badrinath, the online and offline quota of the number of passengers scheduled for the day for the other three dams has been filled till June 3, so the registration has been stopped for the time being. However, the crowd of devotees remains constant. Thousands of pilgrims are departing daily from ISBT, but as many people are leaving, they are reaching ISBT again.
Meanwhile, Dehradun District Magistrate R Rajesh Kumar said that all this is being done only for the convenience of the devotees. He said that by sending the prescribed number of pilgrims to the four Dhams, they are able to see the Lord without any hesitation and are returning with a pleasant experience.
Darshan of god at ease
SK Shukla, the head of a team of about 70 devotees from Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh, who returned from Chardham Yatra, said that God was seen very comfortably in all the Dhams and he did not find any crowd. With this, he appreciated the arrangements made by the government. Meanwhile, due to the lack of space in Haridwar, pilgrims and tourists are turning to Rishikesh, due to which the pressure of crowd is increasing in Rishikesh and nearby places.
To deal with this unforeseen situation, the police have issued a route plan for the vehicles coming to the state from Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, which the police of Dehradun, Haridwar, Pauri and Tehri districts have to implement. This special traffic plan will be operated from the police control room of Rishikesh and Munikireti.
