UTTARAKHAND: The Uttarakhand government has decided to suspend the Char Dham Yatra this year in view of worsening Covid-19 situation in the state. Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat said that only priests of the four temples will perform rituals and puja.
The Char Dham – Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri are located in the state’s Garhwal region. The state government had earlier prepared a draft standard operating procedures (SOP) for registration of pilgrims and visit. The draft was not made public as the government decided to review the situation.
