Sabarimala women entry: Congress to observe hunger strike


Pandalam: The Devaswom Board President changed his stance on the Supreme Court verdict that permitted the entry of women of all ages in Sabarimala temple, when chief minister scared him, alleged Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala. UDF stands firms on the same stance taken at the court during the Oommen Chandy government regime on the issue, he added. Congress will back all those protests that oppose the entry of young women in Sabarimala temple, Chennithala said in a press meet, after meeting the royal family at Pandalam palace. He came down heavily on the state government and the Devaswom Board that decided against filing review petition on the matter. "Devaswom Board President A Padmakumar changed his stand fearing the Chief Minister. I pity his stance, who is also an ex-MLA," Chennithala stated. He also added that Opposition will discuss the legal proceedings that can be adopted in Sabarimala issue and move forward with actions needed. A hunger strike will be observed on Friday under the Congress Pathanamthitta District Committee. A meeting of the former Devaswom Board Presidents has been called on Thursday. The later proceedings will be decided then, he added.
