Baripada: Displaying an exemplary act of unity, integrity and communal harmony, a group of people, consisting of Hindus and Muslims, joined hands to clean up the streets after the ‘Bahuda Yatra’ or return car festival of Lord Jagannath here in Odisha on last night.

The volunteers talked about the importance of cleanliness, adding that it had nothing to do with religion.

“Cleanliness doesn’t have any religion. So, we all have come together. We feel lucky to have been given this opportunity,” a volunteer told ANI.

Another volunteer said, “We want to set an example for people of the country. We should keep our cities clean in order to stay healthy.”

‘Bahuda Yatra’ or the return car festival, was held in this tribal dominant region yesterday, a day after the chariot pulling in Puri.

The three deities — Lord Jagannath, his elder brother Lord Balabhadra and their sister Devi Subhadra — ended their annual nine-day sojourn and returned to the Jagannath Temple on three majestic wooden chariots during the ‘Bahuda Yatra’.
