    Govt committed to ensure safe Amarnath Yatra: Amit Shah


    New Delhi, June 29: The Modi government is committed to ensuring a safe, smooth and pleasant pilgrimage to the cave shrine of Amarnath and is making all possible arrangements to ensure that devotees do not face any inconvenience, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Saturday.

    The annual began on Saturday as the first batch of pilgrims left the twin base camps in Baltal and Nunwan to start their journey to the 3,880-metre-high cave shrine in the south Himalayas.

    “Shri Amarnath Yatra is an eternal symbol of the traditionalism and continuity of Indian . This divine yatra is starting today. I wish all the devotees good luck for the darshan,” Shah wrote on ‘X' in Hindi.

    “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji, our Government is committed to the safe, smooth and pleasant journey of the devotees and the Government has made every possible arrangement to ensure that the devotees do not face any inconvenience. Har Har Mahadev,” he added.

    The yatra started early morning on the twin tracks — the traditional 48-kilometre Nunwan-Pahalgam route in Anantnag and the 14-kilometre shorter but steeper Baltal route in Ganderbal.

    The 52-day pilgrimage will conclude on August 19.
