Chairman of Shree Amarnath Shrine Board and Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha held a meeting of board members at Raj Bhavan on Saturday. In this, many important issues were discussed along with the travel schedule. Covid protocols will be strictly followed during travel due to the return of corona infection in many states. In the meeting, Shri Amarnath Shrine Board has decided to increase the salary of priests from 1000 to 1500 rupees per day.
A meeting of Shri Amarnath Shrine Board was held in Jammu under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, in which the dates of the yatra were decided.
The trip was canceled last year due to Corona
Due to Corona, there was a lot of tussle over the Amarnath Yatra last year. There was a round of yes-no-yes-no at the Raj Bhavan in Jammu on 22 April. Raj Bhavan first informed about the cancellation of the Amarnath Yatra, but later canceled the press release itself. Giving clarification in another press release after an hour, it was said that due to Corona, it is not possible to travel on the scheduled dates. However, the decision was made to decide later whether or not there would be a visit. The trip was ultimately canceled due to the situation.
