During rally, Gupta stated that the state government can take the example from Madhya Pradesh as at the time of Kumbh Mela all the pilgrim vehicles were exempted from the toll and road tax and a great deal of arrangements were made for the visitors. The party president stated that the toll tax and the entry tax for the Amarnath yatris should be exempted by the state government in the shape of subsidy to the yatries and appeal to all the MLA’S and the MP’S to promote the act of providing subsidy to the yatries. Addressing the gathering, Gupta stated that in a telegram to the Governor a large number of the pilgrims lost there lives because of lesser amenities, so this time appropriate medical arrangements should be made like abundant oxygen cylinders, normal air pressure rooms on interval of every 10 kms so a that this time there should be no causality and Yatra can be a complete success for which the pilgrims travel from all over the world.
State Government and Shrine Board should provide infrastructure, equipment, medicines and all other ancillary items thereto to the medical teams to ensure that the pilgrims can be provided adequate treatment without any loss of time.
