Dehradun: Coronavirus infection is increasing continuously throughout the country and daily record cases are being reported. Given this, the Char Dham Yatra, which starts next month, has been postponed.
Speaking to reporters in Dehradun on Thursday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat said, ‘It is not possible to conduct the yatra in the event of an epidemic. The doors of the four Himalayan shrines, known as the Char Dham, will open at their appointed time, but only the Tirtha Purohit will perform regular puja there.’
Travel will be closed for common people
Tirath Singh Rawat said, ‘Char Dham Yatra is currently being postponed because of the fast-growing Covid cases. Only the priests will recite the puja there and the yatra will be stopped for the rest.’
