New Delhi: KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran stated that legislation to protect the customs of Sabarimala temple is possible although the issue is under the consideration of the Supreme Court.
The CPM stated that such a legislation will not be possible as the matter is sub judice. However, Mullappally said that they have sought the opinion of legal experts on the matter.
The Congress leader also asked Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to reveal his position on the Sabarimala issue. It is Pinarayi Vijayan, not Thomas Isaac, who has to state the government’s position, he said while reacting to Thomas Isaac’s statement that the government’s policy will be the same as the Court’s verdict.
“This is a government that is hated. They cannot even claim to have implemented a single welfare scheme. That is why they are trying to communally polarise the society. The government is planning to approach the election by splitting the majority votes and by creating confusion among the minorities,” he said.
Mullappally Ramachandran added that all the changes found in the society were the result of the policies implemented by previous UDF governments.
