After a prolonged hearing that went on past 2 am on Tuesday, the Gujarat High Court decided to continue with its stay on Rath Yatra processions in Ahmedabad and elsewhere in the state, as was directed by a division bench on June 20. To this effect, the court dismissed all intervening applications, as well as the state’s application seeking a modification in the HC’s earlier order. The Gujarat government through Advocate General Kamal Trivedi had moved an application seeking that the procession be allowed along the original route, while restricting public participation. The state had also submitted that the procession would be concluded by 11 am, would see none of the usual stops, no distribution of Prasad, and would have only five persons pulling each of the three chariots.
