Amarnath Yatra: Pilgrims are excited for the Amarnath Yatra and they seem ready to overcome every difficulty to have the darshan of Bhole Baba. Amid tight security, another batch of 226 pilgrims left from Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas on Wednesday morning to have darshan of Baba Barfani at the holy Amarnath cave. Officials have given this information. The 43-day annual pilgrimage to see Baba Barfani began on June 30 via the traditional 48-km-long Nunwan route in Pahalgam in south Kashmir and the 14-km-long Baltal route in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal.

The 34th batch of pilgrims in nine vehicles left for the holy cave amid tight security of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), officials said. According to officials, 74 pilgrims in the first three vehicles left for Baltal base camp. After this, a second convoy of six vehicles carrying 152 pilgrims left for Pahalgam base camp in Kashmir.

According to officials, the number of passengers has come down significantly due to bad weather and the date of the yatra approaching. The Amarnath Yatra will end on August 11 on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. So far 36 people have died due to various reasons during the journey. Apart from these, 15 pilgrims lost their lives in flash floods near the cave temple in July.

Devotees reaching Jammu from all over the country to see Baba

Earlier it was reported that more and more devotees from different parts of the country have reached Jammu to visit the cave temple. Apart from the base camp in Jammu, huge crowd is being seen at the registration counter, token center and lodging center. Officials said the flash floods caused by heavy rains have also failed to change the religious fervor and mood of devotees in Jammu. An official said, “Hundreds of devotees are coming with great enthusiasm. There has been no decrease in the number of devotees.”

ITBP personnel helping the needy

ITBP personnel are helping the needy. ITBP personnel are giving oxygen to the pilgrims near Sheshnag on the Amarnath Yatra route. According to media reports, ITBP personnel have given oxygen to more than 2 thousand pilgrims since the Amarnath Yatra.

Security forces alert due to terrorist threat

Elaborate arrangements have been made for the safety of this visit. In view of the terrorist threat, the jawans are fully prepared here. Bike squad commandos of CRPF have been deployed for the safety of the passengers. It is worth noting that the terrorist organization Lashkar has already threatened to obstruct the Amarnath Yatra. In such a situation, the security forces are fully alert. (input: also from agency)
