Post Date: 18-04-2020

Two months after the state government launched CharDham Yatra for the first time, from Uttarkashi, Chamoli and Rudraprayag to attract devotees in winter, chief minister Harish Rawat announced that the government will provide better infrastructure, night shelters and eating facilities on way to the shrines from next session.

Rawat government began the Chardham Yatra with pilgrimage to Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamunotri and Gangotri winter worship sites on December 14, after the conclusion of summer Chardham Yatra in mid-October. The exercise is aimed at continuing Holy Chardham Yatra throughout the year.

Rawat said on Wednesday the response it has received since its inception is encouraging. "Like the summer Chardham Yatra wherein over 4 lakh devotees from different states come here to offer prayers despite the flash floods, we want of make the winter yatra a success as well" said Rawat.
