On the occasion of Lord Jagannath’s “Rath Yatra” on Friday, President Ram Nath Kovind welcomed the crowd and prayed for everyone’s happiness, peace, and prosperity. To ensure the event is conducted safely, more than 180 platoons of armed police officers, including 1,000 officers of various ranks, are stationed in and around Puri. Additionally, about 50 CCTV cameras have been installed on Grand Road and in other locations across the city.
To stop the spread of Covid, the government will make sure that all safety precautions are taken locally. The government has set up checkpoints to verify vaccination certificates at airports, train stations, bus terminals, and many other entries and exit points in consideration of the crowds. Before the start of the Rath Yatra, Amit Shah (Union Home Minister) performed ‘Mangal Aarti’ (auspicious ritual to pay obeisance to the Lord) of the deities at Shree Jagannathji Mandir in Ahmedabad in the early hours.
