Thiruvananthapuram : CM backs the brutality of police against the pilgrims. The police have arrested only those who paved way for protest or conflict said, Pinarayi Vijayan.
The Chief Minister’s justification is that police have maintained self-control in many stages and the police intervened only at the time of denial of democracy. The agitations in Sabarimala are not named for the devotion, and the Congress is joining the RSS is leading to the tension says the CM.
No devotee was attacked at Sabarimala in this pilgrimage season. Sanga parivar have clear political agendas in the protest. This can only happen if the wrongdoers camp in Sannidhanam. Forceful evacuation at Sannidhanam was a prevention. As part of this, the CM proposed to reach Sannidhanam from 3 am instead of staying in Sannidhanam for the Ghee anoint.
