Indian Army: Overnight bridges reconstructed for pilgrims on the way to Amarnath


Bright Times News: The bridge collapsed causing problems on the Amarnath ride. But courtesy of the Indian Army, it quickly disappeared. Army personnel gave relief to the benefactors by constructing a bridge in record time. The bridge was built overnight by the 15th Corps of the Indian Army or the Chinese Corps in the Baltal Axis area of ​​the Bari Brahman in Jammu and Kashmir.

A natural disaster caused damage to the significant bridge that is part of the route to Amarnath. If the bridge was not built quickly, the benefactors would have to go the other way. In that situation, they would need an additional four hours. But the misery has been avoided by the hard work of the army personnel.

The 15th Corps (XV Corps) of the Indian Army tweeted this news. According to sources, the bridge is located in the Kalamata area of ​​the Baltal route, the main route of the Amarnath Yatra. Since the night of June 30, the temperature in the Bari Brahman area has risen slightly. As a result, the water in the local drain increased and the bridge was damaged. Upon receiving the news, the army took the initiative to bring the situation under control.

Similarly, the army personnel star repairing the bridge on Thursday night. The plan was to finish the work at night. In addition to using helicopters, the soldiers themselves carry the necessary supplies. They work with problems like bad weather or darkness. As a result, Amarnath Yatra was not affected.

A statement from the Indian Army said, “The 13th Engineer Regiment of the Chinar Corps has built a new bridge to meet the challenges of dark and inclement weather. In a record amount of time, this work was finished. As a result, problems have been avoided in Amarnath Yatra. Besides, security messages have also been given to the benefactors. The Indian Army has demonstrated its mettle once more.

The 15th Corps of the Indian Army is originally known as the Chinese Corps. This force is responsible for the security of the Jammu and Kashmir Valley. All the operations and rescue operations in the valley are carried out by the soldiers of this force. Chinar Corps is headquartered in Srinagar. Even before this, the members of this force have shown courage and skill.

The Amarnath Yatra started again this year after overcoming covid’s push. The journey will run from June 30 to August 11. This pilgrimage, which is great for the Hindu religion, attracts a large number of devotees every year. This time, there is a chance that the journey’s start will cause issues. However, courtesy of the Indian Army, it was avoided.
