Bhubaneswar: Keeping in view the possible congregation of people on occasion of ‘Amla Nabami’, the Puri district administration today decided to impose Section 144 on November 12 around the premises of Sakhigopal Temple.
As per the decision, devotees will not be allowed to get a glimpse of Radha’s feet as part of the Radha Pada darshan ritual at the Sakhigopal Temple.
Worth mentioning, the ‘Amla Nabami’ will be celebrated on November 12 and ‘Bada Ekadashi’ on November 15.
The Puri district administration has decided to clamp prohibitory orders under the Section 144 on these two days – November 12 and 15 in view of the pandemic.
Last year also, the district administration had imposed prohibitory orders 200 meters around the Sakhigopal Temple during ‘Amla Nabami’ as the Covid cases were at high.
