Puri: Officials of the Odisha government made all arrangements for Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra today and devotees are not allowed to take part in the procession due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the second consecutive devotee-less Rath Yatra as the Supreme Court ordered no participation of devotees last year. Temple authorities said that only those servitors who tested negative for corona in RT-PCR and received two doses of Covid vaccine will be allowed to pull the chariots. They added that all safety protocols will be followed strictly during Yatra.
