The supporters attempted to gatecrash into the meeting of the Rath Yatra Coordination Committee where Arun was reviewing the preparedness for the upcoming Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath.

The Congress workers were also seen shouting slogans against the government and the minister alleging their involvement in the Nabakalebara fiasco.

Puri police detained 8 Congress workers following the incident.

“This government and this minister are directly part of all the irregularities pertaining to Nabakalebara. How can he come here again and be part of this year’s Coordination Committee? We won’t allow it. We also demand the resignation of Nabakalebara Infrastructure Development Committee Chairman Maheswar Mohanty,” said an agitator while being taken away by the police.
