Jaipur: Relief was writ on their faces - large and inescapable as the first lot of 31 pilgrims reached Jaipur on Thursday night to the sounds of rhythmic chanting, and blessing Lord Shiva whose famous abode in Badrinath, ironically, lies buried in sludge from the floodwaters.
To oversee the safety of remaining pilgrims from state, chief minister Ashok Gehlot would fly to Uttarakhand on Friday. Gehlot is expected to meet his counterpart during the visit. Officials said, 80 pilgrims from state have been rescued by the Uttarakhand government so far.
Kuldeep Ranka, secretary, relief informed dna that the home department of Uttrakhand has been updating the list of people rescued on its website www.uttrakhandpolice.uk.gov.in and people can look on the website for verifying the names of their kin stuck in the hill state.
Though there is no official figure of death or missing people from the state, the government decided late evening to send 2 helicopters to help in the rescue operations.—dna
