Bhubaneswar: Four days after the logjam, the Suara and Mahasuara Nijoga softened its stand and decided to prepare Mahaprasad for the devotees at Sri Jagannath temple in Puri today.
The Ananda Bazar which wore a deserted look due to unavailability of ‘Abadha’ will become active again from today and the devotees will heave a sigh of relief.
The Suara servitors had stopped cooking the Mahaprasad for the devotees for the last four days demanding Rs 50 lakh compensation for losses due to Mahaprasad remaining unsold on April 16 owing to delay in the rituals.
Khechudi Bhoga and Dalma were distributed among the devotees by some servitors.
On April 16, rituals of the deities were delayed as the concerned Palia servitor did not turn up after Orissa High Court had asked the temple administration to follow the recommendation of the Justice BP Das Commission which stipulates that none other than the servitors who have duty inside the Garbha Gruha (Sanctum Sanctorum) be allowed only.
On April 19, the High Court expressed displeasure and asked the administration to ensure smooth conduct of rituals.
