Puri: The last Rath Yatra Coordination Committee meeting, was scheduled to be held on July 3 under chairmanship of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, has been postponed to July 6 following the Sri Jagannath Sevayat Sammelani’s call to boycott the event.
The coordination meeting will be held after the temple administration will have a meeting with the servitors to resolve the standoff, informed sources.
In may be mentioned here that the servitors of the Puri Srimandir under the banner of Sri Jagannath Sevayat Sammelani had put up posters inside the temple premises on Saturday calling for boycott of the fourth coordination meeting.
They accused the Puri Collector of showing anti-servitor attitude and said as Arvind Agarwal will be present in the meeting; the Sameelani has urged servitors not to participate in it.
Right from Niladri Bije issue to the alleged misconduct to First Lady in Puri Srimandir, the bureaucrat has attempted to tarnish the image of the servitors during different occasions.
