Governor Honorable Manoj Sinha to removed the chaos and unnecessary restrictions at the Lakhanpur, with a restoration of counter registration at Jammu and Katra for pilgrims of Shri Mata VaVaishno Devi.
Sahni said that the tourist industry, called the backbone of the Jammu and Kashmir economy , is largely dependent on religious visits.
He said that the Shri Amarnath and Michel Yatra already has been affected by Covid-19.
