‘Sabarimala curb orders issued at Centre’s behest’
Central government had asked to issue prohibitory orders in Sabarimala in view of the protests from Hindu outfits and other organisations in light of the Supreme Court verdict allowing women devotees to enter the temple, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at the meet-the-press programme of Kannur press club on Sunday. When Pinarayi said it was at the behest of the central government order the prohibitory order was issued at Sabarimala, reporters asked for proof.
“You asked me this question because you think I am like Narendra Modi. I don’t lie. I know that you would ask for this. That’s why I have come with this document,” he said, showing the circular issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs .
