In the meantime sudden outbreak of violent protest on Agniveer Issue at various places including the route of the Pad Yatra and serious apprehension of further flare-up in the situation in the route and implementation of Dhara-144 at various places forced us to review the situation. The Police also didn’t give the permission for the Pad Yatra Program in view of the prevailing situation. The views of other stake holders including the participants of Pad Yatra were also taken and entire situation was assessed. After reviewing the complete situation in all perspective, we have decided to defer the proposed Pad Yatra Program presently and further decision will be taken subsequently.

We extend our deep gratitude to all those who volunteered to be part of the Pad Yatra Program and our Punjab Team involved in the preparation.
