The Delhi Chief Minister reportedly issued orders directing the officials to prepare a scheme under which the government will sponsor free pilgrimage to the Senior citizens and the youth.
For the pilgrimage four spots have been marked by the Delhi government which are Badrinath, Kedarnath, Mathura and Haridwar. Mr. Kejriwal has particularly asked the Tourism Department to make preparations for the program and submit the reports at the earliest so that it can be executed asap.
Initially the plan will be implemented with 1000 senior citizens where all the amenities along with the services of the journey will be provided to the pilgrims. The government is expecting to execute this plan during the Makar Sankranti festival in January 2018. This action by the Kejriwal government gathered all praises from The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha.
