- There was a dispute going on for 21 years regarding the selection of the members of the old committee
Just before the Jagannathpur Rath Mela, the Jharkhand State Hindu Religious Trust Board has constituted a new 12-member committee of the Jagannathpur Temple Trust Committee. Its notification was also issued on Thursday. In fact, there was a dispute going on regarding the selection of the members of the old committee. In the year 2000, the matter reached Ranchi Civil Court. After hearing all the parties, the court ordered to form a new committee in 2013.
After this, the Board of Religious Trust organized a meeting of the secretary of the committee, Chandrakant Raipat, on June 25 last year. He asked when and how the committee was formed. When was this information given to the Trust Board. Raipat informed that 24 members have been made in the committee. But the board did not give information about when the new committee was approved. Taking this as the basis, the Trust Board declared the old committee as illegal and announced the new committee.
