As the Amarnath Yatra gets canceled this year due to the covid-19 pandemic, Chhadi yatra was carried today in Kashmir from Srinagar to Pahalgam and Chhadi pooja was performed in Surya Temple.

Devotees from all over the Country joined the yatra and participated in the pooja. They shouted the chants of Lord Shiva and expressed their happiness.

“I’m from Surat. My group of friends is here to attend the pooja. Last year the yatra didn’t happen due to covid-19 but this year we are excited and happy to take Lord Mahadev’s blessings.” said a devotee

The yatra happened by following all the covid-19 precautionary measures by the devotees as well as the priests. They also appreciated Administration’s preparations and facilities.

“Covid-19 is an invisible enemy. Unless we all follow the guidelines, we can’t be safe. Hospitals are meant for cure. The ICU beds cannot prevent us from falling ill. Government has provided good facilities and it’s our role to protect ourselves and maintain social distancing.” a Priest said

Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday reviewed the construction work of the strategically important 6.5-km Z-Morh tunnel here on the Srinagar-Leh highway.
Speaking with reporters at the Z-Morh tunnel site, Gadkari said his ministry is also building 20 tunnels of a total length of 32 km in Jammu and Kashmir and 11 tunnels of a total length of 20 km in Ladakh.

The cost of building these 31 tunnels in Union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh will be around Rs 1.4 lakh crore, the road transport and highways minister said.

Gadkari claimed that in the past two years, the Modi government has been able to do the same amount of work related to road projects in Jammu and Kashmir that earlier took 50 years.

He said that after the completion of the Z-Morh tunnel, the local tourism economy will get a boost.

The Z-Morh tunnel between Gagangir and Sonmarg will provide connectivity in all weather conditions between Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir and Kargil in Ladakh.

Gadkari noted that tourism is the sector where 49 per cent of capital expenditure happens on the employment generation.

Asked whether the speed of construction work of the Z-Morh tunnel increased after Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh became Union territories, Gadkari said, “These issues are for you to evaluate (ye sab baaten apke adhyan aur chintan ke liye hai).”

The project cost of the Z-Morh tunnel is Rs 2,300 crore.

The 6.5-km-long Z-Morh tunnel project is under the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL).

For the Z-Morh tunnel, there is a five-km approach road and the tunnel is 6.5-km long and is bi-directional. It also has an escape tunnel for emergencies.
