Former SJTA chief submits report on ‘Brahma Parivartan’ fiasco

Puri: After a lot of hue and cry over delay, former administrator of Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) Suresh Mohapatra submitted his report on the ‘Brahma Parivartan’ fiasco during Nabakalebar of the Trinity.

The report was submitted to the temple administration in a sealed envelope some ten days back, informed sources.

“The report contains names of five ‘Daitapatis’ and also remarks on servitors who allegedly revealed the ‘secret rituals’ of the Lord to the media,” said Mohapatra.

He added, few suggestion have been made in the report to avoid recurrence of such instances. “The temple administration will discuss the report and take actions thereafter,” the former SJTA chief administrator said.

Gajapati of Puri Dibyasingha Deb had recently expressed concern over the delay in submission of the report on the Brahma Parivartan fiasco.

Earlier, Odisha Government had directed Suresh Mohapatra, the then chief administrator of SJTA to submit a report after deviation in the conduct of the sacred rituals had led to severe resentment among people during the Brahma Parivartan of the Trinity during the Nabakalebar in 2015.
