Early Times Report

JAMMU, Dec 14: In a Public Interest Litigation filed by Adv Summit Nayyar seeking respondents to develop/improve the tourist infrastructural facilities for the Mantalai-SudhMahadev including temples which attracts a large number of tourists every year both in summer and winter season and to take effective measures as expeditiously as possible.
A Division Bench of State High Court Comprising Badar Durrez Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Kumar after hearing Sr. Adv Sunil Sethi with Advs Mohsin Bhat & Summit Nayyar for the PIL whereas Govt Adv Ahatsham Bhat for the State, directed Secretary Tourism, Chief Executive Officer Patnitop Development Authority shall present in person on December 20, 2017 to explain the court as to what measures have been taken with regard to the properties under its control which are part of the PIL.
During the course of hearing it was submitted that Jammu and Kashmir attracts tourists from all over the world for its presence of religious temples and striking scenic beauty. Sudhmahadev temple and Mantalai temple in Udhampur District are considered sacred. Sudh-Mahadev temple is situated 120 km away from Jammu. A few kilometers farther will find Mantalai temple at an elevation of 1450 metres from the ground and these temples were built around 80 years ago. It is said that the Godess Parvati was born at the location of Mantalai temple and also believed that Lord Shiva married Goddess Parvati here and further submitted that the Dhirendra Bramchari, the yogic mentor of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed in a air crash in June 1994 and his property worth hundreds of crore in Mantalai Aparna Asharam is gathering dust. In the past several years the state government has failed to promote the tourist resort on the tourism map of the state. The respondent has failed to tap the tourism potential of the area and is still in the state of infancy with regard to developing the place on the tourism map of the state. According to the sources of the petitioner the immoveable and movable property located inside the sprawling ashram built over 1002 kanals of land is almost lying dilapidated condition. Out of 26 rooms of the under construction five star hotel the automatic locks of one dozen rooms are broken and nothing is lying inside these rooms. That after his accidental death in a private plane crash on 9th of June 1994 the yoga guru's property was left untouched by the successive State government.
