He cleared the situation that the yatra has not suspended, instead controlled. He said fixing the broken bridge in Sonprayag might take some time. More arrangements will be made in rest of the places. After which the yatra will be resumed. He told the heavy rainfall has caused the loss of approximately 50 crores to the state.

He immediately left for the state from his Delhi tour for checking the aggravated situations from rain. Interacting with the reporters in Bijapur State Guest House he said the reports of stranded pilgrims and suspending char dham yatra are false. Because of inclement weather the pilgrims are halted in safer places. He told some parts have received significant loss, a road swept away in Lambagad and a bridge collapsed in Sonprayag.
