Nagarjuna Besha Delayed By 3 Hours
The rare Nagarjuna Besha of Lord Jagannath was delayed by almost 3 hours following some dispute between Bhandar Mekap, Khuntia and Singhari over gold ornaments. Reportedly, a controversy also erupted over engagement of more number of servitors for the rituals. The Besha rituals which were scheduled to kick-off at 4:45 AM began at 7 AM after the intervention of administration.
