Amid a religious atmosphere, Chief Minister Mr. Narendra Modi flagged off the 134th Rath Yatra today morning from the Jagannath temple in Ahmedabad.

This was for the tenth consecutive year that Mr. Modi performed the Pahind ceremony and worshiped the Lord Jagannath with golden chamar (brush) in the main chariot of the Lord Jagganath.

Chief Minister described the Lord Jagannath as a lord of poor and deprived people. He wished that the Lord will shower his blessing in the form of rain and the festival will bring prosperity to the people.

He said the festival of Rath Yatra is being celebrated in about 110 places in Gujarat and is a unique religious tradition in which the Lord himself symbolically moves out in the city to meet his devotees.

Minister of State for Home Mr. Praful Patel, Law Minister Mr. Padipsinh Jadeja, Ahmedabad Mayor Mr. Asit Vora, MLAs, Mahant of the Jagannath temple Shri Dilipdasji Maharaj and trustees of the temple were present on the occasion.
