Credit given to temple committee on clean-up ops at Kedarnath

Ganesh Godiyal, MLA and president of Shri Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee praised the relentless work of his team, in the removal of debris accumulated inside and outside of Kedarnath temple.

Before re-opening Kedarnath temple, the situation was tough, as flash-floods and landslides brought huge heap of silt and boulders. But under the supervision of chief executive officer (CEO) B D Singh, the situation was brought under control.

He further said that the team was solely responsible in cleaning operations of the holy shrine in rough weather conditions. Any cash or other valuables found during the cleaning operations were handed to the concerned authorities.

He informed that the level of Mandakini River flowing near the famous Kedarnath shrine has risen due to accumulated debris on the river bed. There is urgent need to relocate that debris, so that the river doesn’t divert from its natural course.  Flash-floods along with landslides had brought boulders and debris to the temple during the tragedy take took place in June this year. He said that in his personal opinion there is no need to relocate boulders lying near the temple, as they provide a protective wall to the shrine.
