The government will request the court for conditional approval of the rath yatra: CM Rupani
After the meeting, Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said that he has got the benefit of Aarti and Darshan of Lord Jagannath. The SC had ordered that the rathyatra in Orissa should not be stopped due to corona. Today the Supreme Court allowed the trip with conditions. The Gujarat government will then make representations in court. Like Orissa, Ahmedabad also has a tradition of rath yatra. Therefore, according to the court's restriction, the rathyatra should be submitted for approval. The government will request the court for conditional approval of the rathyatra. We are able to make preparations for the planning of the Rathyatra as per the conditions stated by HC. We have faith that we can take out the rathyatra. The Advocate General is currently applying to the court.
