Puri: The servitors of Lord Jagannath at Sri Mandir called for boycott of Ratha Jatra coordination meeting to be chaired by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to protest a series of false allegations leveled against them.

The Shree Jagannath Sevayat Sammilani through a poster asked the servitors not to attend the Ratha Jatra coordination meeting this year for the district collector’s anti-servitor tendency to defame the servitors on several issues including Niladri Bije and disrespect to first lady at Lord Jagannath temple in Puri.

“All the self-esteemed servitors are asked to boycott the Ratha Jatra coordination meeting to be chaired by Chief Minister as part of the protest against a series of false allegations and anti-servitor community tendency by the district collector in several irregularities right from Niladri Bije to Rashtrapati Bhawan,” the servitors’ body said in the poster.

Notably, the servitors appeared to be displeased with the district collector over the recent false allegation after Press Secretary to the President rubbished the alleged misconduct with President Ram Nath Kovind and his wife Savita Kovind during their visit to Jagannath Temple in Puri in March this year.
