Pathanamthitta : Minister Kadakampalli lied about the restrictions up on Ayyappa pilgrims. Devotees were stopped at Marakoottam even last night. Devotees who reached by 10.30 pm were stopped. Hence the pilgrims could not reach Sannidhanam before ‘Harivarasanam’. Ayyappa devotees were in trouble without getting access to the basic facilities. Even the people who booked room to stay at the Sannidhanam had to stay in the middle of nowhere.
