Holding the state government and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik responsible for the "utter chaos and mismanagement" in the ritual, an important part of Lord Jagannath's 'Nabakalebar' festival, Singhdeo said the lapses had hurt the sentiments of lakhs of devotees world-wide.

The yatra, scheduled to conclude on July 6, aims at making the people aware of the mismanagement during the sacred rituals due to inefficiency and inaction on the part of the BJD Government in the state, he said. Lashing out at Naveen Patnaik for his silence on the issue, which drew widespread outcry, Mohapatra said there should be a thorough judicial inquiry into the "gross mismanagement" in 'Brahma Paribartan'.

The role of the chief minister and state Law minister must be included in the purview of the judicial inquiry, he said addressing the gathering at the launch of the yatra. Judicial inquiry into the fiasco is essential as the most sacred and secret ritual of 'Brahma Paribartan', which was scheduled to be held the during night on June 15 was performed in day time the next day, he said adding there are also allegations of theft of Brahma soul.

Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram said mismanagement in 'Brahma Paribartan', which has lowered the image of Odisha, must be investigated thoroughly by a judicial commission. BJP's action programme came close on the heels of a successful state-wide bandh observed on June 26 by Congress in protest against the temple fiasco and to demand a judicial probe into it.

BJP launches Jagannath Sanskruti Suraksha Yatra

Odisha is the land of Jagannath culture. It represents the religious worships of Odisha. It has unique and valuable religious tourism resources. The state has something for everyone.


Jagannath is considered a form of Vishnu. To most Vaishnava Hindus, Jagannath is an abstract representation of Krishna ; to some Shaiva and Shakta Hindus, he is a symmetry-filled tantric representation of Bhairava ; to some Buddhists, he is a symbolic representation of the Buddha in the Buddha-Sangha-Dhamma triad; to some Jains, his name and his festive rituals are derived from Jeenanath of Jainism tradition. The icon of Jagannath is a carved and decorated wooden stump with large round eyes and a symmetric face, and the icon has a conspicuous absence of hands or legs. The worship procedures, sacraments and rituals associated with Jagannath are syncretic, [3] and include rites that are uncommon in Hinduism. The origin and evolution of Jagannath worship is unclear. Jagannath is considered a non-sectarian deity.
