With the Amarnath Yatra scheduled to commence on June 29 and conclude on August 19, and other events like the Kheerbhawani Mela starting on June 14 and Machail Yatra on July 18, discussions centered on comprehensive security strategies and adequate facilities for pilgrims. Special focus was given to the Yatri Niwas in Bhagwati Nagar and other lodging centers.

Transport plans were also reviewed to ensure a safe and hassle-free journey for pilgrims along the national highway. Deployment of security personnel in key districts including Jammu, Doda, Kishtwar, Rajouri, Poonch, and Reasi was finalized to address any contingencies.

Official statements confirmed that Strong Quick Reaction Teams (QRTs) and Road Opening Parties (ROPs) will be deployed, with thorough arrangements at reception centers, langars, and assistance booths.

ADGP Jain directed all district Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) to optimize available resources for the smooth conduct of the yatras, emphasizing the significance of security and coordination.
