A BJP delegation will meet Union Home Minister P Chidambaram today, to voice concern over the increased deaths of Amarnath pilgrims and the lack of amenities for them.
The BJP has also sought the intervention of the union tourism Minister in providing better facilities to Amarnath pilgrims by taking a fair view, alleging that the state government has mishandled the affairs.
The Supreme Court has expressed shock over the increasing number of deaths of Amarnath yatris. BJP has repeatedly pointed out that the reduction of the annual yatra period from three months to 39 days has resulted in the large number of deaths as the number of pilgrims has been rising every year, BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.
