Jagannath Rath Yatra route to be made convenient
Obstructions enroute Jagannath Rath Yatra to be cleared before 4th of July.
Shri Jaganntah Rath Yatra will take place on the 4th of July this year. An issue has been raised regarding the convenience of the procession as the entire route has lots of pot holes, cables are hanging low which can obstruct the path of the grand Rath and stray animals are yet another issue. The devotees organising this Rath Yatra are in a state of dilemma about the procession as the obstructions, if not dealt with on time, can result in a very uncomfortable path for the procession.
The representative committee of the Jagannath Rath Yatra met with the administrative officers and asked them to find a solution for these issues. Administration has decided to take control of the situation to make this Rath Yatra a smooth one. All the areas are being inspected for 20 feet high cables, other obstructions on road viz. pot holes, stray animals and other factors that are likely to interfere the path of the procession.
