“Various developmental schemes for Shreekhetra have been launched which will take 2-3 years to complete. It will only become possible if both the Centre and State governments take the programmes forward. The cooperation of devotees of Lord Jagannath across the world is utmost necessary. If we unite all, we can transform our Shreekhetra Purusottam Dham Puri into the best spiritual and religion place for Santatan Vedic region in the world,” said Gajapati.
