Sabarimala row: Women Wall in Kerala on Jan 1

Sabarimala row: Women Wall in Kerala on Jan 1

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 1 (UNI) Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday said a 'women wall' will be formed in the State on January one to create an awareness on September-28 SC verdict allowing the entry for women of all ages into Lord Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala.

Talking to newspersons after convening a meeting of community leaders, he said the women wall will be formed from northern district Kasaragod to the State Capital.

Stating that Kerala will not be allowed to turn into a lunatic asylum, the Chief Minister said renaisance movement should be continued to wipeout discrimination against women.

The Chief Minister convened the meeting in the wake of strong protest raised by the BJP and the RSS against the Government move to implement the SC verdict allowing women entry into the Lord Ayyappa temple.

Though the Government has invited 190 community organisations for the meet, a few organisations including NSS, Yoga Kshema Sabha and, Kshetriya Kshema Sabha, have skipped the meet in protest against the Government stand on women entry in Sabarimala.

Meanwhile, Nair Service Society (NSS) General Secretary G Sukumaran Nair said his organisation will not attend the meet.

But, SNDP General Secretary Vellappally Natesan, who attended the meet, criticised the caste organisations which came against the SC verdict.

Earlier in the day, BJP Rajya Sabha member V Muralidharan attended a meeting of the Member of Parliaments (MPs) by wearing a black badge.

Expressing his protest against the arrest of K Surendran and the Government stand on Sabarimala, the BJP MP sought an apology from the Chief Minister for worsening the situation in Sabarimala.
