Reiterating the Kerala government’s stand on the 2018 Supreme Court order that allowed woman’s entry to the Sabarimala temple, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, here on Monday, said it was foolish to compare this with a verdict on jallikattu.
Vijayan was reacting to demands from the Congress-led opposition in the Assembly that the government must come out with laws to help protect the tradition and culture of the Sabarimala temple.
“It”s foolish to compare jallikattu with Sabarimala (verdict). Hence, it”s not possible to do what the Tamil Nadu government did when it came out with laws after the apex court ruled against jallikattu. It has also been the Centre”s stand, but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here is hiding this and fooling believers,” said Vijayan.
