Shree Jagannath Sena holds Puri bandh today against ‘Queue System’

Puri:  Protesting against the ‘Queue System’ darshan for the darshan of deities at the world famous Jagannath temple here, the Jagannath Sena, a socio-cultural outfit, called a 12-hour bandh in the holy city on Wednesday.

Members of the Jagannath Sena and devotees were seen breaking the railings and barricades installed on the ‘Baisi Pahacha’ near Singhadwar of the temple.

Vehicular traffic on the roads came to a grinding halt in the coastal town due to the dawn-to-dusk bandh, while business establishments remained closed today.

Meanwhile, police have taken convener of the outfit Priyadarshan Patnaik into preventive custody this morning.

As per the new system, introduced by the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) on October1, devotees have to form a queue at the Singhadwara and move inside the temple through barricades. After having darshan, they will exit through the Uttaradwara. There will be separate barricades for men and women.
