Sabarimala review verdict: Govt must show restraint and wait for larger bench verdict, says Kummanam
Thiruvananthapuram: Senior BJP leader Kummanam Rajasekharan said the review petitions being referred to a seven-judge bench points to the fact that there was some apparent error in the earlier verdict.
"The government must show restraint and wait for the larger bench's verdict. In case women pilgrims in the banned age group try to offer worship, government must prevent them from doing so," Rajashekharan said.
The Supreme Court on Thursday referred to a larger bench by 3:2 majority, the review petitions filed on the entry of women of all age groups into the Sabarimala temple. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi referred the review petitions to a 7-member larger bench.
