Stressing upon his stance against the majority Hindus, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan today said that the state government is in favour of women entering the Sabarimala. He also said that legislation is not possible on the issue. He was responding to a question on Sabarimala in the Assembly.
The government’s stand is to enforce the Supreme Court ruling on the admission of youths in Sabarimala. The Supreme Court has not taken a different stand on Sabarimala. As such, the government will adopt a stand that will help maintain law and order in Sabarimala.
The Supreme Court’s verdict is on fundamental rights. Stopping women who are presently not allowed to visit the temple is a violation of fundamental rights and is unconstitutional. The government has been advised that no form of legislation can overcome it. He also said that lawmaking would be a propaganda ploy used to trick devotees.
With the CMs statement, it has become clear that the chaos that shook Kerala last year would repeat this year too. The CPM led ruling party had witnessed a pathetic fall during the elections thereafter.
