After the overcrowding and stampede incident at Pushkar Ghat in Rajahmundry, Chief Minister has taken steps to ensure that no such mishaps would happen again. The situation, therefore, is brought under control and the normalcy is restored.

Chief Minister has earlier offered heartfelt condolences to the families that endured loss of lives. He announced an exgratia of Rs. 10 lakhs to these families. He also visited all the pilgrims who were injured in the stampede and offered them complete support for their quick recovery.

At this juncture, he requested support from the public to make Godavari Maha Pushkaram a safe and peaceful event. He asked people not to panic. He requested one and all to avoid overcrowding and rushing into a single ghat.

“Please maintain restraint, follow queue lines and instructions, and head to other Pushkar Ghats when you see excess crowd at one place. Pilgrims safety is of top priority to us. We will provide complete assistance”, said the Chief Minster.

There are over 250 Ghats identified by the Government for the Pushkaram. About 160 of those Ghats are in East Godavari District and 90 Ghats are in West Godavari District. Click below to know further.

  1. Don’t rush to a single Ghat !!!!
    Look out for V V V I P convoys, and if you find signs of the impending visit by a VVV I P. Keep off
    And movecto the next that
    Do not ask how but do it

    Otherwise face the risks

    Have patience and keep moving, if needed the pushkarams dates will be extended by GO

  2. Note the toll free telephone at the control center is just does not work
    Do not expect any assistance from them
    Even if you have a PIO card you cannot expect them to help for transport from pushkar Ghatt to RIver Bay
    The volunteers of Ramkrishna Mission ferried me on a wo Wheeler to complete my journey while ISKON swami’s were plying around in Limousines on the same road
    The only vehicle for the common man is 108 ,with the special vehicles of SWAMIJI’s staying put at pushkar Ghat
