Shri Jagannath Rath Yatra will take place on the 4th of July this year. Preparations are on for this grand yatra. It has been appealed to stay away from gulal and cracker bursting during the yatra. Also there should be no “swagat dwaars” and every organisation carrying out their ‘jhanki’ must necessarily have it registered.
A meeting was held in Asind ki Haveli on Sunday 23rd June regarding rules and regulations to be followed during the rath yatra. It was also stated that people participating in the yatra must be attired traditionally. All committees were also directed to stay away from the use of plastic.
The rath yatra will be conducted in 3 parts. 1st part will have jhankis from Rampura to Jagdish Chowk, 2nd part will be carried out from Hiranmagri to Samorbag and then to Jagdish Chowk and the 3rd part will be from Hathipole to Clock Tower to Jagdish Chowk.
