He further added, “For many years, the Amarnath Yatra is being conducted by the people of Kashmir, while the yatra takes place with their support, If all of us work together, it will be successful and and I hope it remains the same till the last day of the Yatra.”
Pertinently, Hajj pilgrimage has coincided with Amarnath Yatra this year and on this Governor Malik said, “The two yatras are going simultaneously, Hajis are leaving for Mecca and Yatris are coming to Amarnath Cave, For these Yatras we have to make necessary arrangements to make both the Yatras smooth and hassle free. In this regard the traffic regulation orders were passed which don’t put blanket ban on public movement.”
