Sabarimala women entry: Minister Kadakampally Surendran expresses regret
Thiruvananthapuram: Devaswom minister Kadakampally Surendran expressed regret over the incidents that took place at Sabarimala over women entry. He vowed that whatever be the verdict of the Supreme Court, LDF government will implement it only after discussing with the believers.
The minister, who is also a candidate for the assembly polls, has accepted that the government committed a mistake by allowing women to enter the Sabarimala temple.
Kadakampally has come out with a confession in the wake of the opposition raising the Sabrimala issue against LDF amid the polls.
“It was a strange incident in 2018. Everyone is disappointed over it. We are also disheartened about the Supreme Court verdict and related issues in Sabarimala. But we hope that the public is no more worried about the incident. Whatever be the verdict of the Supreme Court over the women entry in Sabarimala, we will only implement it after holding talks with the believers. We have been repeating this stance. The government has already quashed all cases relating to the Sabarimala protests. All these moves are upholding one message,” said the minister.
Earlier, the minister stated that Sabarimala is not a place to prove activism while responding over the women entry row. But later he was forced to support the party’s stance.
