Govt. takes Anti Sabarimala stance, says Kummanam Rajashekharan

published on November 20, 2014

Erumeli: State upadhyakshan of Sabarimala Ayyappa Seva Samajam Kummanam Rajashekharan has lashed out at the state government of Kerala, for adopting a passive stand, regarding provision of basic amenities in Sabarimala and other allied pilgrim centres, where devotees have been flocking during the Mandala season.

“The squabble between forest department and Devaswom Board stands as an impediment to the progress and development of the holy place. There will be high water scarcity in the sannidhanam, if water level in Kunnaar Dam is not raised. The setting up of waste recycling plant in Sabarimala 15 years ago has not seen the day when functioning would begin. The construction of Que complex has also not been completed. The unending, unresolved, continual spat between forest department and devaswom board is the prime reason for developmental projects getting stalled. Police have provided a one way passage for pilgrims reaching Erumeli, to facilitate comfortable participation Pettathullal, without any restrictions. However, the move to sabotage this is deplorable. Development of Erumeli should be included in Sabarimala master plan. The district administrative section should ensure security for pilgrims who come for Pettathullal and to get this executed, Hindu organizations would leave no stone unturned,” he said, addressing the press at the inaugural function of Annadana Seva Kendram, initiated in Erumeli by Seva Samajam.
