With the portals of Kedarnath shrine slated to be reopened for the public next month, a team from the Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC) left for the shrine to inspect the condition in that snowbound area. A seven-member inspection team headed by the BKTC chief executive officer BD Singh departed for Kedarnath from the Omkareshwar temple in Ukhimath on Wednesday morning. The temple committee executive officer NP Jamloki said that on reaching Kedarnath, the team will inspect the shrine area and review the condition of temple compound, office, counters, electricity and water supply facilities in view of the heavy snowfall experienced in the area. The plan for clearing the snow and cleaning up the counters and other facilities will be drafted after the inspection.
It is pertinent to mention here that the portals of Kedarnath shrine are slated to be reopened to the public on the morning of May 9 while the portals of Badrinath shrine will be reopened on May 10. The BKTC media in charge Harish Gaur informed that earlier the committee team had inspected the conditions at Badrinath on March 31.
