Shree Jagannath Temple Administration serve show cause notices to three servitors for allegedly showing inappropriate behaviour to First Lady of Country

Bhubaneswar:26/6/18; The Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) has decided to serve show cause notices to three servitors for allegedly showing inappropriate behaviour to Savita Kovind, the First Lady of India and wife of President Ram Nath Kovind.

The decision was taken after the temple administration received a letter recently in which Rashtrapati Bhavan has expressed strong displeasure over inappropriate behaviour of some servitors of the temple towards Kovind and his wife during their visit to the temple.

The issue was thoroughly discussed recently in the temple managing committee meeting.

According to sources, President Kovind during his two-day maiden visit to Odisha on March 18 had gone to Jagannath temple along with his wife. When Kovind went near Ratna Singhasana at the innermost chamber of Puri Jagannath temple, a Khuntia Mekap servitor allegedly did not make room for him. Besides, some servitors allegedly nudged the President and his wife while both were having darshan of the deities.
