2nd Rath Yatra Coordination Committee meeting today

Puri: The second coordination committee meeting for the upcoming Rath Yatra will be held today on the premises of Gopabandhu Ayurved College here. RDC A B Ota (central range) is scheduled to chair the meeting at 11 am.

The committee will discuss progress of works decided in the first coordination meeting held last month. Construction of chariots, temple rituals are also some other matters to be raised during the discussion.

Besides, issues of health, sanitation, roads, sewerage, drinking water, electricity, and law and order situation will also be discussed in the meet.

Puri MLA Maheswar Mohanty, central range IG Soumendra Priyadarshi, SJTA office bearers, Collector Arvind Agarwal and SP Sarthak Sarangi are scheduled to attend the meeting.

On the other hand, Shree Jagannath Sevayat Sammilani has urged the servitors’ community to stay away from Ratha Yatra coordination committee meeting through posters. Such posters were found at several places near the temple.

Protesting the suspension of some fellow servitors due to disturbance during Niladri Bije rituals last year, the servitors’ body had also refrained from the first meeting held last month.
