Special focus on infrastructural development in Kedarnath- CM
Considering the sharp rise in the number of people visiting Kedarnath in Rudraprayag district, special focus will be laid on the infrastructural facilities in Kedarnath. The chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said this while chairing a meet regarding infrastructural facilities in Kedarnath here on Monday.
The chief minister said that it is important to publicise the Panch Badri and Panch Kedar shrines on the Tourism department website so that people visiting the Badrinath and Kedarnath shrines are also able to visit these related important shrines. Regarding the infrastructural works to be undertaken in Kedarnath, discussion should be held with the Rudraprayag district magistrate and a design for the same should be prepared. All possible assistance will be provided when it comes to providing facilities for the devotees, he said. Detailed proposals of the works related to infrastructural development should be prepared. The help of the Birla Group can also be taken in infrastructural development works, he opined.

Structures for the Bhog Mandi, Matth Bhandar, residence of the Rawat (chief priest), priests along with office and quarters for the employees are to be built. One Rain Basera is also to be constructed for the convenience of the visitors.
