Pon Radhakrishnan on way to Pamba by KSRTC bus
Nilakkal: Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan reached Nilakkal for Sabarimala darshan. Police said that only the minister’s vehicle can be allowed entry and others can reach Pamba by KSRTC bus. But, the minister and other BJP leaders, protested against this and decided to take a KSRTC bus to Pamba.
The minister alleged that the government was unnecessarily troubling the devotees. He asked the police not to be stubborn on allowing devotees only in government vehicle. BJP leader AN Radhakrishnan too accompanied the minister.
A battle of words occurred between BJP leaders and SP Yathish Chandra. The minister asked SP why private vehicles are also allowed to the place where they say only KSRTC buses are allowed. Police informed that private vehicles do not park at Pamba but just drop the devotees there. The SP inquired if the minister will take up the responsibility of traffic jam.
When asked about the women entry issue, the minister declined to comment.
