Puri Rath Yatra: Three More Modification Petitions Filed In Supreme Court

Bhubaneswar: Three more modification petitions were filed in the Supreme Court on Sunday, seeking permission to allow the chariots of Lord Jagannath and his siblings to roll on Bada Danda (Grand Road) in Puri.

The apex court had stayed the annual sojourn of the sibling deities across Odisha amid the COVID-19 pandemic, on Thursday.

The petitions have been filed by Kharanshu Sekhar Das, Parthasarathi Saraf and B Dandapani Patra.

In the last two days, five modification petitions have been filed separately by Aftab Hussein, Jagannath Sanskruti Janajagaran Manch, president of the Chhattisha Nijog of Puri Jagannath temple Janardan Pattajoshi Mahapatra, secretary of Daitapati Nijog Durga Dash and executive chairperson of Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad Dr Badrinath Patnaik.

All the petitioners have sought a partial modification in the earlier order of the SC for holding Rath Yatra only in Puri, the original abode of Lord Jagannath, by following all COVID-19 guidelines.
