SC Allows Jagannath Rath Yatra With Restrictions

Jagannath Rath Yatra

The Supreme Court has allowed Jagannath Yatra to be held in Puri, Odisha with some conditions. The Supreme Court has allowed Jagannath Yatra to be held in Puri, Odisha with some conditions. A three-judge bench gave its verdict in this regard. A three-judge bench was set up for hearing on Monday on the petitions filed by Chief Justice SA Bobde for organizing the Puri Rath Yatra.

Earlier, a single bench of the Supreme Court refused to approve the Rath Yatra during the hearing on 18 June.
Chief Justice SA Bobde, however, made it clear that the Supreme Court will hear only on the Rath Yatra in Puri and not on the Rath Yatra in any other part of Odisha.

Earlier today, the Center while referring to the Puri Rath Yatra case in the Supreme Court, said that it can be allowed to be organized without the participation of the people. The Odisha government supported the Supreme Court’s view of organizing the Puri Rath Yatra with some restrictions.

There has been a lot of skepticism in Odisha about the annual and famous Rath Yatra. Regarding this, the temple committee had suggested to organize the event without devotees, but the court had given a decision to ban any event.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said during a hearing on 18 June that the Rath Yatra could not be allowed in Puri this year, keeping in view the public health and safety interests. The Chief Justice had said that Lord Jagannath would not forgive us if we had allowed the Rath Yatra to be organized this year.
