New Delhi: A bench Supreme Court of India has given a green signal on Monday (June 22) that Puri’s Rath Yatra can be held this year but without public participation in the view of Coronavirus pandemic saying the ‘tradition of centuries may not be stopped’.

They, however, will be in charge of ensuring that the rules are maintained and there is no congregation of the devotees, the court said after petitions asking it to recall its earlier order banning the hugely popular festival. The seven-day festival is slated to begin on Tuesday (June 23).

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sambit Patra has also filed a similar plea before the Supreme Court stating that the centuries-long traditional festival to be allowed public participation. Patra submitted that the Rath Yatra can be conducted by employing the services of Lord Jagannath’s 800 sevayats – the persons who perform the ritual services of Lord Jagannath and other deities at the Puri Jagannath temple.
