Puri, Aug 18: By rejecting the claims of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) that 80 percent of repair work of Jagamohan has been finished, the Shri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) submitted a supplementary affidavit in the Orissa High Court on Wednesday in response to a public interest litigation (PIL).
Except the de-plastering work of Jagamohan and grouting of the Jagamohan drain, no other repair work regarding the main structure has been carried out yet by ASI, the SJTA further claimed.
The Court has asked the ASI to submit details of the finished repair work and the remaining works, after it verified the counter affidavit filed by the SJTA. The next hearing will be held on August 29.
The Court has also ordered ASI to hold a meeting with Srimandir Managing Committee and the district administration for completion of repair work in time.
