Puri: While Odisha Government has imposed a curfew in Puri town starting from 8 pm on Monday, the preparations for the forthcoming Bahuda Yatra are in full swing.
Puri district administration has ordered the closure of all the hotels, lodgings, inns and guest houses from today. The owners of these organisations have been asked to submit written reports about the closure of their organisations before the district administration.
