Sannidhanam: restrictions during night time have been relaxed at Sannidhanam. Pilgrims from now onwards can move 24 hours from Sannidhanam to Pampa. Devotees are allowed to be at Valiya Nadappanthal. Meanwhile, devotees conducted prayer chanting at Vavaru Nada in the evening. Permission for the ritual ‘karpoorazhi’ was denied.
KSRTC will provide full time service from Nilakkal. Earlier, ban was imposed during 9:30 at night to 2:30 am.
High Court had criticised fiercely on the restrictions in Sabarimala and asked to lift unnecessary control. Moreover, wide spread protest was raised from the part of devotees too.
