People were facing problems due to the constraint of limited numbers.
In fact, in the last 3 weeks, the High Court, while giving conditional approval to the Char Dham Yatra, had given the arrangement to allow only 800 pilgrims in Kedarnath, 1000 in Badrinath, 600 in Gangotri and 400 in Yamunotri for darshan in a day. . Since then, the devotees were gathering and reaching all the four Dhams. Due to this many problems were arising. In such a situation, the district administration had to stop or bring back many devotees.
The court also directed for medical arrangements for the pilgrims.
To get rid of this problem, the state government had filed an affidavit in the High Court on Thursday, demanding to increase the limit of the number of passengers. However, the court has ordered the Uttarakhand government that medical arrangements should be completed for all the pilgrims. Along with this, instructions were also given to keep helicopters ready for medical facilities in all the four Dhams.
