DEOGARH:The deadlock over pulling of chariot, which was stopped over participation of Dalits in Kundeigola village under Reamal block, was resolved on Monday. The village has seven hamlets comprising Kamarpal, Mahalsahi, Boulasahi, Mandirasahi, Khaliposhisahi, Talasahi and Harijansahi.

Except Harijansahi, residents of all other hamlets have been participating in Rath Yatra since long. However, the Daitapatis of Puri, who were invited for Nabakalebara, decided to allow the Dalits to participate in the Rath Yatra this year. This led to resentment.

On Rath Yatra day, the chariot was not pulled after ‘Pahandi Bije’ following differences over participation of Dalits.

The issue was resolved after a Peace Committee decided that the chariot will be pulled with participation of Dalits on Bahuda day.
