CM asks Centre not to change traditional route of Kailash-Mansarovar yatra


#Dehradun #Uttarakhand Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Tuesday asked the Centre not to change the traditional route of Kailash-Mansarovar yatra which passes through the hill state. At a meeting with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi, Rawat said the yatra route passing through Uttarakhand is linked with the people's religious sentiments and therefore should not be changed, an official release here said. "People have believed for centuries that Lord Shiva followed this route to marry Maa Nandadevi who is considered the daughter of Uttarakhand. It is due to this belief that the yatra to Kailash-Mansarovar has been going on for ages through Uttarakhand," an official release quoted Rawat as telling the Union minister.
