Supreme Court allows Puri’s Rath Yatra with no public attendance

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Odisha government to prepare crucial arrangements to administer Puri’s Rath Yatra, which is scheduled to start from June 23, in a restricted way because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The apex court also said it cannot “micro-manage” the ceremonies and left it to the wisdom of state, the Centre and temple management to deal with that problem.

SC bench also said that If it is restricted to Puri alone in a limited way without public attendance as formulated by Gajapati Maharaja of Puri, Chairman of the Puri Jagannath Temple administration, the state govt will endeavour to make necessary arrangements to conduct it accordingly.
