#SabarimalaVerdict side-effects: Hindus pledge not to make donations to ‘Left-controlled Devaswom Board’ temples

    Scores of Lord Ayyappa devotees today converged at Pamap Ganapathy temple and pledged not to make money offerings to temples controlled by state controlled Devaswom Boards. They complained that Travancore Devaswom Board President A Padmakumar, an atheist, is a stooge of the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and interested only in protecting the interests of the party rather than that of the devotees.

    Recently, BJP MP Suresh Gopi has also made a call not to make financial contributions to any Devaswom Board-controlled temples as the government is not interested in protecting the rights of devotees.
