Katra: Under high security cover, the five-day historical Kousar Naag yatra, along with Charri Mubarak, was flagged off by MLA Reasi Baldev Raj Sharma and Mahant Ram Saran Dass Maharaj from the Shiv temple, Nai Basti, Reasi, here this morning. Enthusiasm and high spirits were visible on the faces of pilgrims hailing from Reasi, Talwara, Gran Salal Mahore, Chassana who were chanting bhajans and had queued up early morning to become a part of this historical leg of Kousar Naag yatra despite challenging weather conditions. The yatra along with historical Charri Mubarak was organised successfully in the past due to which the popularity and awareness about Chassana route gained huge momentum and a lot of public hailing from different parts of the state expressed willingness to join the yatra this year from Rajouri.
