Will seek legal advice over Sabarimala verdict: Pinarayi Vijayan
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the government’s stance was to accept the Supreme Court verdict whatever it may be.
“We are of the understanding that there is no stay on the present order over Sabarimala women entry. The government will seek legal advice for more clarity in this regard. We will decide what to do if women come to enter the temple,” the CM added.
The government’s stance is to approve the court verdict. It is our understanding that the earlier verdict by the five-member bench remains. But we need more clarity regarding this. Several other matters have been referred to the seven-member bench. Clarity is needed regarding other matters also, Pinarayi Vijayan said.
Earlier, the SC had clarified there was no stay on the earlier verdict. We are unaware of any further changes in this regard. We will seek legal advice from prominent legal experts regarding matters that affect Kerala. A decision will be taken only after there is clarity regarding the confusing matters, the CM explained.
“It is learned that two among the five-member bench had opposed the majority decision. Had one among the three had taken a different stance, the verdict would have been different,” said the CM.
