Center Allows Chariots Construction

 Union Government has permitted that the construction of Chariots of Trinity.

 Odisha Government has sought clarification on 6 May on whether to go for construction of Chariots during the Lockdown period.

Responding to query, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on 7 May has said that “The Ratha construction activities in the Ratha-khala, which is situated on both sides of the Grand Road in front of the Temple Office and Sri Nahar (Palace) is permitted with stipulations. 
 
MHA has said that “No religious congregation takes place in the Ratha-khala. Complete segregation of Ratha-khala should be ensured”.
 
Union Government in its order said that the new guidelines on lockdown measures issued by MHA on 1May, 2020, including the National Directives for Covid-19 Management, should be compulsorily adhered to.

MHA was informed that the Managing Committee of Shri Jagannath Temple held a meeting on May 4, 2020, wherein it was decided to go for construction of chariots of Trinity.

State Government has informed that no religious congregation takes place in the Ratha-Khala as it is a workplace and not a public place accessible to general public.
 
However,  for effective COVID-19 management, complete segregation of the Ratha-Khala from adjoining Grand Road and adjoining properties by erecting a cloth partition wall so that public can be effectively prohibited, informed the State Government to the MHA.

Taking these points into consideration, MHA has allowed construction of chariots, while the decisions regarding holding of Ratha Jatra be taken by the State Government keeping in view the conditions prevailing at that point of time, said the Union Government.
