He said that the state is known for its hospitality and the Amarnath Yatra is the shining example of the same.

Terming Amarnath yatra as a symbol of ‘Kashmir’s composite culture,’ he said it would be incomplete without the active support of the local people. He said that both pilgrim and traditional tourism had proved a boon to the state’s economy.

Akhtar appreciated the measures taken by officials for providing ensuring cleanliness and proper sanitation at the camp and along the route.

He asked the officials to discourage any use of polythene on the entire track and base camps and prevent effluents from toilets or ‘langars’ (community kitchens) from being dumped into the streams.

On the occasion, he also interacted with yatries who had arrived at the base camp from different states of the country. The yatries expressed their gratitude at the facilities provided by the government.
