Supreme Court at 11 am on Monday To Hear Modification Pleas On Rath Yatra

New Delhi/Bhubaneswar:21/6/20: Multiple petitions, seeking recall/ modification in the stay order on Rath Yatra, have been listed for hearing in the Supreme Court at 11 am on Monday.

The single-judge bench of Justice S Rabindra Bhatt is scheduled to hear the petitions at virtual court number 3.

A total of 17 petitions have been filed for a partial modification to the earlier order of the apex court. Eight among them have been filed from Odisha, seeking permission to allow the chariots of Lord Jagannath and His siblings to roll on Bada Danda (Grand Road) in Puri on June 23.

On Thursday, the SC stayed the annual sojourn of the sibling deities across Odisha citing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Supreme Court lawyer Sarthak Nayak told the media that the single-bench judge, however, cannot decide on whether to hear these petitions as a three-member division had given the verdict earlier. After the petitions are listed, the division bench will decide whether these will be heard or not, he added.

On Sunday, two more modification petitions were filed by Kharanshu Sekhar Das, Parthasarathi Saraf and B Dandapani Patra of Odisha.

Five petitions were filed separately by Aftab Hussein, Jagannath Sanskruti Janajagaran Manch, president of the Chhattisha Nijog of Puri Jagannath temple Janardan Pattajoshi Mahapatra, secretary of Daitapati Nijog Durga Dash and executive chairperson of Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad Badrinath Patnaik, on Friday and Saturday.

All the petitioners have sought a partial modification in the earlier order of the SC for holding Rath Yatra only in Puri, the original abode of Lord Jagannath, by following all COVID-19 guidelines.
