Sabarimala: Arrested persons were troublemakers, says CM
Kozhikode: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that it was not devotees who arrived in Sabarimala on Sunday and that the police arrested those who intentionally created troubles. He also said that the government can only execute the verdict of the Supreme Court. He was inaugurating the state conference of Kerala Union of working Journalists (KUWJ).
A team of RSS workers were already camped at Sannidhanam with plans of creating chaos. They were not devotees. It was the same persons who caused trouble in Sabarimala during Chithira Atta Visesham and after that. Police arrested such troublemakers only. The government will definitely help the real devotees, he said.
The government is not stubborn and has no other interest than implementing the Supreme Court verdict. The government does not compel women to enter Sabarimala but only accept the Supreme Court’s stand that both women and men have right to worship, he said.
Kerala attained renaissance through the consistent efforts of all except for one group of conservative people. When the majority tried to bring changes in the society, only they wanted to hold it back. Such conservative people are supporting the caste system here.
There were many incidents in history to sabotage the progressive movements. The conservatives try to take the state back to this state. The media should think if they are still supporting the social reforms like they did in the past.
When there were attempts to insult Kerala regarding the flood relief, all Malayalis stood together against the move. As the followers of renaissance, we have set a model for the country. But some people are trying to destroy it. We all should stand together against this, the chief minister demanded.
