Machail Mata yatra from July 25: DDC reviews arrangements

Early Times Report

KISHTWAR, May 11: The 43-day long Machail Mata Yatra in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir would commence on July 25, officials said Saturday, as the district administration reviewed arrangements, including security for the annual pilgrimage.
Thousands of devotees from across the country visit the scenic Paddar valley, also famous for its Sapphire, during the yatra and pay obeisance at the holy shrine of goddess Durga in Machail village of Kishtwar after trekking a 30-km arduous route.
Kishtwar, which was declared terrorism-free over a decade ago, was rattled by the killing of state secretary of BJP Anil Parihar and his brother Ajeet Parihar on November 1 last year, followed by assassination of senior RSS leader Chanderkant Sharma and his security guard inside a health centre on April 9.
A meeting chaired by District Development Commissioner (DDC), Kishtwar, Angrez Singh Rana reviewed the arrangements for the yatra which is commencing from July 25 and scheduled to end on September 5, the officials said.
They said senior civil and police officers, including Senior Superintendent of Police, Kishtwar, Shakti Kumar Pathak, besides representatives of the Army, CRPF, CISF, police and members of religious organisations attended the meeting.
Rana undertook detailed discussions with regard to arrangements to be made by the different departments and agencies to ensure hassle free yatra, the officials said.
He asked the security agencies, including police, the CRPF and the Army to deploy sufficient number of personnel en route from Thathri to Machail to avoid any untoward incident during the yatra, they added.
The officials said Rana impressed upon the departments concerned to ensure availability of potable drinking water, electricity, firewood, food grains, kerosene oil, medicines, life saving drugs, telecommunication services, mobile banking facilities and other essential commodities.
He appointed project manager, Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP), as yatra officer who would keep proper check and ensure that all arrangements are put in place for the general convenience of the pilgrims, they said.
