JAMMU: Shri AmarnathJi Yatra (SANJY) commenced on 28.06.2018 and since then the commitment of CRPF seems unprecedented. On the one hand, CRPF is securing the yatra routes, yatri camps and other important places while on the other hand it is working enthusiastically towards helping the pilgrims. Besides the help desk ‘Madadgaar’ at Jammu Tawi Railway Station and other information centers, CRPF today inaugurated its Mobile Help Center van ‘SAATHI’.
It is pertinent to mention here that before commencement of yatra, pilgrims from different parts of the country are accommodated in various yatri camps in Jammu for completion of formalities. Inspite of the help desk of CRPF at Bhagwati Nagar Base Camp Jammu, a need was felt to provide help and information to yatris staying in other camps also. To achieve this objective, Mobile Help Center ‘SAATHI’ was inaugurated and flagged off by Shri Abhay Vir Chauhan IG CRPF Jammu Sector.
CRPF personnel in the van will be visiting various camps in Jammu and apprising the pilgrims about the security measures to be kept in mind. They will also be providing other relevant information to the yatris. In addition, trained personnel of CRPF present in the van will be visiting various camps and provide First Aid treatment to the people in need and will also be distributing medicines.
