STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: The senior leaders of Congress Party in a statement issued here on Sunday strongly criticised the government and district administration for the utter neglect and failure to address the grievances of stranded Amarnath Yatris.
While interacting, with stranded Yatris a team of PCC office bearers headed by Raman Bhalla (former Minister) Vice President, Manmohan Singh General Secretary JKPCC and Sanjeev Sharma interacted with the stranded Yatris at various places including Yatri Bhawan, Bhagwati Nagar Jammu.
The pilgrims who are stranded all along the national highway are facing great shortage of food, safe drinking water, toilet etc.
The pilgrims complained that no body from State administration approached them to enquire about their problems, Bhalla said.
There is complete breakdown of law and order machinery in Kashmir province which has led to attack on Yatris, he said.
The leaders urged upon the State Government to ensure safety of the pilgrims and take steps to ensure smooth conduct of Yatra at the earliest so that the stranded Yatris can fulfill their desires of having Darshan of Holy Cave of Shri Amarnath.
They urged upon the government to deal firmly with anti-national elements who are trying to destroy the communal harmony and traditional brotherhood in the State.
