Puri:13/7/17::Authorities of Puri finally woke up from slumber to prevent beach pollution in the temple town, famous as the abode of Lord Jagannath.
The municipal body was spurred to action today afternoon following the two days of hunger strike by the internationally acclaimed sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik. As the health condition of the renowned sand artist deteriorated, he had to be shifted to Bhubaneswar-based private hospital.
Patnaik is stated to be out of danger.
Patnaik flanked by other sand artists had sat on hunger strike at the beach site on Tuesday to register his protest against unabated beach pollution. The striking sand artists had erected a sand art depicting the highly polluted state of Puri beach at Banki Muhana.
