A choice on Puri’s well-known rath yatra may also be taken via the Odisha executive, the Ideal Courtroom mentioned as of late after petitions asking it to recall its previous order banning the vastly common pageant. The state will assess the placement and if want be, take steps to limit festivities, the courtroom mentioned. The seven-day pageant is slated to start the following day.
Providing to impose curfew for an afternoon to be sure that the virus does now not unfold, the Centre had mentioned that this is a “topic of religion for crores” and a ritual “happening for hundreds of years can’t be interfered with”.
