5/24/2019 11:44:11 PM
Though the annual Amarnath Yatra is to begin from July 1, the Governor, S.P. Mailk, seems to be in a haste to ensure peaceful completion of the 46-day yatra. Since South Kashmir is highly vol a tile security grid need be upgraded. He Governor Satya Pal Malik, who is also chairman of Shri Amarnath The Shrine Board (SASB), chaired a high level meeting at Raj Bhavan the other day to review security arrangements of the 46-days yatra which is scheduled to commence on July 1 from both Baltal and Pahalgam routes. Governor stressed the need for all concerned agencies to maintain a close watch and effective coordination to ensure the smooth conduct of the forthcoming yatra. The detailed presentations were made by the security agencies regarding the obtaining and emerging security environment in the State, keeping in view the envisaged objectives of adversary external agencies.
The meeting held extensive discussions with regard to preparedness for meeting any unforeseen situation arising in the yatra area; deployment of ROP for safe movement of yatris; corridor security and area domination especially beyond ROP hours; functioning of the Joint Control Rooms at every yatra Camp; linking up Joint Control Rooms with the MET Department and the District Disaster Management Units; deployment of Mountain Rescue Teams (MRTs) of the State Police along with Rescue Teams of various forces at identified locations on both the Yatra routes; deployment of well equipped Fire Fighting teams at pre-determined points; installation of X-Ray Baggage Scanning units at appropriate locations; Access Control Arrangements at Neelgrath, Panjtarni and Pahalgam helipads; Bar code enumeration points; telecommunication facilities along the yatra routes etc.
In addition to this it has been decided to escort the yatris, leaving from Jammu to the Pahalgam camp and the Baltal camp. It has been observed that militants may not remain silent and they have to use some tactics to disrupt the yatra. But those connected with the yatra, including hoteliers, traders and ponywalls have requested the militants to stop including in any incident of violence. As a result of separatists' campaign for shortening the yatra period as many as three to six lakh pilgrims visit the shrine and they contribute much to the economy of the state. After Pakistan supported terrorism took roots in Kashmir tourism has failed and people have to bank on pilgrim tourist arrivals. Weather always plays the spoil shot and additional troops be deployed to help the yatris to cover the yatra.
