PIL filed in Orissa High Court to allow Rath Yatra of Baladevjew

Cuttack: A petition has been filed in the Orissa High Court seeking permission for conducting the famous Rath Yatra of Sidhha Baladevjew in Kendrapara in the lines of the festival at Puri Shree Jagannath Temple.

As per sources, five servitors of the Sidhha Baladevjew temple have filed a public interest litigation before the Orissa High Court while praying it to allow the conduct of the annual festival with participation of only sevayats under strict adherence to Covid protocols.

The development comes just hours after the BJP staged mass protests in several parts of Kendrapara demanding Odisha government to permit the car festival in the Tulasi Kshetra.

The construction of the Brahma Taladhwaja chariot which rolls down the road during the festival in the town has stayed after the administration issued an order following Odisha government’s directive to only allow the Rath Yatra at Puri.
