In the meeting of the Devasthanam Management Board, there was no discussion on the issue of dissolving the board, a setback to the pilgrimage priests. They were expecting some decision regarding their agitation in the board meeting.
Let us inform you that a sudden meeting of the Devasthanam Management Board was called by the government. The eyes of the pilgrimage priests demanding the dissolution of the board were on the meeting. But there was no discussion on the demand of the pilgrimage priests in the board meeting.
On the other hand, the political tussle between BJP and Congress has intensified over the movement of pilgrimage priests. When former Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat told the hand of Congresspeople behind the movement, he came under the target of pilgrimage priests. Here, Congress took a dig at Trivendra that he is in a rage after being removed from the CM’s chair.
Trivendra Singh Rawat has stepped down from the post of Chief Minister, he is now in a rage. When the Assembly Bill was brought, Congress urged the government to reconsider it. But the government did not accept the request of the opposition.

Displeasure among pilgrimage priests for not taking a decision on the Devasthanam board
Devbhoomi Teerth Purohit Hakhakukdhari Mahapanchayat alleged that under pressure from the Center, the government was avoiding reconsidering the Chardham Devasthanam Board. Due to not taking concrete decisions on the Devasthanam board, there is displeasure among the pilgrimage priests and rights holders of Chardham.
Mahapanchayat spokesperson Dr. Brijesh Sati said that recently a delegation of Chardham pilgrimage priests and rights holders had met the Chief Minister and demanded a reconsideration of the Devasthanam Board.
On this, the CM had asked the pilgrimage priests to provide documents. Documents have also been given to the CM office on behalf of the pilgrimage priests. The pilgrim priests and rights holders hoped that the government could make a decision in the Devasthanam Management Board meeting.
Due to not taking any concrete decision regarding reconsideration in the meeting, it seems that the government is adopting double standards. He said that now the agitation will be intensified against the Devasthanam Board.
Jan Aakrosh rally will be organized at Uttarkashi district headquarters on 23rd July. In which hoteliers and public representatives will also be included along with the rightful owners of pilgrimage priests.
