In a statement released to media Maharaj, said that some people on social media are spreading unnecessary rumors regarding the Chardham Yatra and the Opposition is also fueling  those rumours.

Maharaj said that presently the Chardham Yatra was going on smoothly, in which a large number of devotees are coming to Uttarakhand to visit the pilgrimage sites. Strict action will be taken against whoever tries to disrupt the Yatra by raising unnecessary issues, he pointed out.
