Thiruvananthapuram: BJP leader Kummanam Rajasekharan said that both NSS and BJP hold the same opinion over the Namajapa issue. It was BJP workers who were imprisoned during Sabarimala protest. UDF’s promise that they would legislate a law for Sabarimala is childish.

Being the chairman of election manifesto committee, Kummanam told Mathrubhumi News that the temple administrative system will be redefined and the devotees will be entrusted with more representation and responsibilities.

Both NSS and BJP want the cases charged over Namajapa protest to be withdrawn. Sabarimala temple has been an active topic of discussion since 1950. Mannam and Shankar came forward for Sabarimala and it had made headlines then, Kummanam added.

Everyone who suffered torture in Sabarimala issue are BJP workers. Temples, devotees and Hindu community have been facing neglect all the time. So, they have become aware of the issue now, Kummanam stated.

Sabarimala is only one of the 1300 temples under the Devaswom Board. The promise to make a special law for a single temple looks silly. Christians and Muslims have the power to control their religious worship centres. But temples are controlled by the government. LDF and UDF should make clear the reason behind this, Kummanam asked.
