SABARIMALA ISSUE

TV channels aired a video clip in which he purportedly said that Sabarimala temple chief priest consulted him before threatening the closure of the shrine if women in 10-50 age group entered it.

Thiruvananthapuram : BJP Kerala unit chief P S Sreedharan Pillai courted a controversy Monday as TV channels aired a video clip in which he purportedly said that Sabarimala temple chief priest consulted him before threatening the closure of the shrine if women in 10-50 age group entered it.
As his remarks at a BJP Yuva morcha event in Kozhikode Sunday drew strong reactions from the CPI(M)-led ruling LDF and opposition Congresss, Pillai, an advocate practicing in the Kerala High Court, said the priest had called him seeking a legal clarification, which he had given.

Several people come to him for legal consultations, he said.

In the video, Pillai was purportedly heard saying the priest had consulted him on whether closing the Ayyappa temple if women try to enter the temple would lead to contempt of court.

Pillai had said he assured the tantri that there would be no contempt and thousands of believers were with him.

"Sabarimala issue is a golden opportunity for us," he had told the party workers, claiming that the agitation was "BJP's agenda".

Temple opens...
Sabarimala (Ker) : Hundreds of police personnel, armed commandos, surveillance cameras and mobile jammers have turned Sabarimala, into a virtual fortress, hours before it opened on Monday evening for a special puja. The temple opened at 5 pm and closed at 10 pm Monday for the 'Sree Chitira Atta Thirunal' puja slated for Tuesday.
