Rath yatra Jaganathpuri
The state's home minister, Pradipsinh, met with the Jagannath temple officials a day after the Gujarat government approved the Rath Yatra ceremony to discuss the route and preventive measures in keeping the coronavirus sickness, heightening fears of a potential third wave.
Because of the worries about Covid-19, the Rath Yatra in Ahmedabad would be held under a severe curfew. According to the home ministry, the limitations will be in place throughout the procession's path, from mornings until late afternoon.
The number of cars allowed in the parade has also been limited by the state administration. "Only three chariots and two other vehicles will be allowed to carry out the Yatra," he also said after the meeting.
The parade will not be allowed to include any additional vehicles, singing troupes, akhadas, elephants, or adorned trucks. "We appeal to the public to behave in a Covid-appropriate manner and to observe the protocols," the state home minister said.
After Gujarat high court rejected clearance for the traditional public parade due to the Covid-19 epidemic crisis last year, even a symbolic Rath Yatra took held in the grounds of the Lord Jagannath temple in the Jamalpur region.
The parade used to include at least 100 vehicles carrying adorned elephants and tableaux. It is projected to be completed in a matter of hours this year.
