Bhubaneswar: BJD chief S R Patnaik on Thursday strongly adversarial a suggestion via the ISKCON Ludhiana unit to organise the yearly Rath Yatra on a distinct date, and steered the Odisha leader minister to take in the subject together with his Punjab counterpart.
The problem used to be raised via Patnaik within the meeting, who cited reviews that the World Society for Krishna Awareness’s (ISKCON) Ludhiana unit used to be making plans to carry Lord Jagannath’s annual Rath Yatra on November 16.
The competition is normally noticed on the second one day of ‘sukla pakshya’ within the month of ‘Asadha’, as consistent with the Hindu calendar.
“Leader Minister Naveen Patnaik must take in the subject together with his Punjab counterpart and be sure that ISKCON isn’t allowed to behavior Lord Jagannth’s Rath Yatra in November,” he stated.
“Other folks of Odisha would possibly rebellion in opposition to ISKCON in the event that they harm the spiritual sentiments of Hindus,” Patnaik alleged.
