Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Monday directed the state chief secretary to extend help to the Uttrakhand government in its effort to rescue the Sikh pilgrims, stuck on the way to Sri Hemkund Sahib due to heavy rain causing road blockades at several places.


Stating this here on Monday, an official spokesperson of the CMO said that chief secretary Rakesh Singh and MLA Daljit Singh Cheema were continously in touch with the Uttrakhand government over the rescue operations.

Thousands of Sikh pilgrims had been trapped as Sri Hemkund Sahib had been cut off from rest of the state due to bad weather followed by floods.
