I greet the people of these islands on the auspicious occasion of Rath Yatra.  Lord Jagannath is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and the Rath Yatra of Odisha witness the coming together of the entire community in celebration of the grace and divinity of Lord Jagannath. May the pious and noble ideals associated with Rath Yatra enrich our lives with peace, good health and harmony. I also pray to the Lord to give all of us  the strength to fight against the COVID 19, serve the poor and honour the warriors of this Pandemic situation.

All of us must devote ourselves for the overall development of these islands and always be united together to fight against every disastrous situation.
