Non-availability of choppers for Machail Yatra sparks protest in Kishtwar’s Paddar village

Pilgrims today staged protest and shouted slogans against the administration as choppers, supposed to ferry them to Shri Mata Machail Temple, could not reach to the Gulabgarh base camp in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir.

”The yatra started from August 1 and devotees have started reaching to the Paddar village including those who have booked their chopper tickets,” an official here told Media Sources.

He said that due to inclement weather conditions, the Heli-Service providers could not make choppers available at the helipad in Paddar.

”Nearly four choppers were supposed to reach Paddar on scheduled time but they could not take off and reach Paddar,” he added.
