Jagannath temple row: Odisha govt says demolition of dilapidated mutts to continue; seers claim conspiracy, Opposition cries foul

Odisha government’s mega plan to transform Puri into a world class heritage city may have been welcomed by all, however, less than two weeks after the demolition of dilapidated mutts and other structures around 75 metres of the Jagannath temple began, it has spiralled into a major controversy.
“People of Puri may not be expressing their feelings, but the majority is unhappy at the way the ancient monasteries, which have an umbilical link with the rituals of the Jagannath temple, its culture and heritage, are being pulled down. The breakneck speed at which the government is trying to carry out the job raises doubts in the minds of the people and devotees,” said renowned Jagannath culture researcher Surya Narayan Rath Sharma.
