Mr. Vohra, who is also the Chairman of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, visited Chandanwari and Pahalgam along the traditional route of the annual yatra and reviewed the progress of various ongoing works yesterday.

At Chandanwari, he discussed the arrangements being made for the pilgrims with all concerned officers, an official spokesman said.

He said the Governor was told that the Pahalgam-Chandanwari Road was being upgraded and a substantial portion of this stretch would be improved well ahead of the commencement of the Yatra.
