No congregation of devotees to be allowed, the top court warned.

Odisha Government says it will coordinate with the Centre to hold Rath Yatra.

Earlier, the SC had stayed the annual Rath Yatra at Jagannath Temple in Odisha’s Puri due to the Coronavirus pandemic, saying ‘Lord Jagannath will not forgive us if we allow this’.

An organization named the Odisha Development Council had filed a petition in the SC that 10 lakh devotees may converge for the yatra.

The Puri Rath Yatra is scheduled to take place on June 23 and preparations were almost complete.
