Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: With flames of protest erupting in Odisha over the untimely Rath Yatra organised by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) on the occasion of Basant Panchami in Mumbai, Yudhistir Govinda Das, national director of communications, ISKCON (New Delhi) has finally released a statement mentioning that the chariot fest of the Holy Trinity is being observed as per the scriptures.

“Gajapati Maharaja Dibyasingha Deb in November 2019 had suggested that we could observe Rath Yatra in the 12 days between Gundicha and Bahuda Yatra. Since ISKCON has been organising the fest for the last five decades, it will take some time for transition,” said Das.

Detailing on the national meeting in November last year, Das informed that at the request of Gajapati Maharaja, ISKCON had resolved to move the Rath Yatra festivals that it celebrates across the country to coincide with the 12-day Rath Yatra period in Asadha month.
