Not security forces but locals make Amarnath Yatra successful: Guv Malik

Srinagar: Governor Satya Pal Malik emphatically Thursday that though security forces are working day and night in the smooth movement and security of Yatra but local Kashmiri populations make the Amarnath Yatra a success.
While reiterating the significance of local Kashmiris in making the annual Amaranth pilgrimage successful Governor Malik told reporters on the sidelines of an official event in Srinagar “Police and civil administration are making wonderful contributions by working day and night but it is the local Kashmiri who actually makes Yatra successful”.
“I have ordered setting up special camps for making available all essentials to Yatrais. People are very happy with the arrangement and I hope it remains the same till the last day of the Yatra”, he further added.
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.”
When asked about the pendency of hundreds of files in GAD, Governor said, “I am making efforts to ensure transparency and accountability in the system. I am working in the direction to get an application developed so that the file movement can be easily tracked by public”.
While replying to the question that Vigilance has produced the reports on many corruption cases and why action has not been taken, Governor Malik said, “We are working on that”
