Jatra Party Owners put ball in Odisha Govt's Court

Mr. Patnaik confirmed that 23 Jatra troupes to be closed down next year owing to increasing cost, growing loss and restrictions imposed by district administrations.

While Odisha Minister and owner of Kalinga Gananatya Jatra Troupe, Pradeep Maharathy supported the decision, he also added they are ready to discuss the matter with government if there is a favourable response. 'We may continue if the Govt supports us,' he added.
