Devotees coming from the Haridwar-Najibabad road will be encouraged to take a dip at the Namami Gange Ghat itself. Similarly, ropeway will be used only for sending back devotees for crowd control in Mansa Devi temple premises.
IG Kumbh Sanjay Gunjyal visited Chandi Ghat, Pantadwip and Mansa Devi areas on Monday. He inspected the Namami Ganges ghats, parking, pilgrims to and from the temporary bridges on the Ganges in the Chandi Ghat area.
He said that the pressure of devotees in Harki Paidi and nearby ghats is quite high on the bathing festivals. In such a situation, a detailed action plan is being made to encourage devotees coming from Najibabad, Bijnor and Kumaon to bathe at the Namami Gange ghats built under the Chandi bridge to reduce the pressure on their feet.
IG Kumbh visited Harki Padi region:
IG Kumbh visited Pantdwip parking Harki Paadi area. Instructed to remove encroachment from the parking area and make the fair core area beggar-free. Inspected the Mansa Devi temple route on foot. Instructions were given to construct a shoe stall on the evacuation route to create an uninterrupted traffic system during the bathing festival.
An alternative route is proposed to connect the Mansa Devi pedestrian and roadway, which will make it easier for devotees to reach the shoe stall to pick up their shoes in return.
