Two bridges built overnight by the Indian Army for pilgrims of the Amarnath Yatra

Srinagar – The Indian Army built 2 bridges overnight in Jammu – Kashmir; hence, the Amarnath Yatra could continue safely. The damage on the bridges – located near Brarimarg on the Baltal Axis – was caused due to landslides. Hence, there was difficulty in proceeding with the Yatra.

Therefore, the Chinar Corps of the Indian Army who had been assisting the civil administration for the security of pilgrims of the Amarnath Yatra, were requested to rebuild the bridges. The Army completed the assignment despite bad weather and darkness all around.

The Amarnath Yatra has commenced on 30th June with 2,750 devotees.

Editorial viewpoint

Will sluggish administration taking years to complete public works learn anything from this ?
