Bhubaneswar, Feb 8: Chief Minister Naveeen Patnaik will visit Puri Srimandir today to offer prayers. It’s his first visit to the Jagannath Temple after the Covid-19 pandemic.

His visit assumes significance as the National Monuments Authority (NMA) has imposed restrictions on construction works around the temple that has stroked political controversy in the state.

Meanwhile, the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) on Sunday wrote to the NMA requesting to withdraw the draft heritage bylaws that might restrict the ongoing beautification and development works around the 12-century shrine.
