There is no restrictions for real devotees. Government explains, pouring water in Nadappanthal is a usual procedure and the Government has presented videos of washing Nadappanthal of previous years. Nadappanthal can never be a shelter for protesters. Government also explained in court that police arrested the criminals who have created issues. Base camp had to be shifted to Nilakkal due to the lack of basic facilities. And shifting of base camp and the Supreme Court verdict has no relation, says the affidavit.
