Yatra Reached Pathanamthitta

PATHANAMTHITTA: In spite of complete black out by Visual and Print Media, the `Kshetra raksha yatra,’ is drawing more people on the way to the final destination at Thiruvananthapuram on May 25th. It will conclude with a `Kshetra raksha’ march to the Secretariat on May 26.

After covering 11 districts Yatra reached Pathanamthitta yesterday.Yatra received receptions at Thiruvalla, Pullad, Mallappally, Ranni, Pandalam and Adoor.

Kummanam  Rajasekharan told,The nomination of presidents and members of devaswom boards by Ministers and MLAs having no faith in God could never be justified. He demanded the Government to take steps to ensure adequate representation of devotees in the administrative set up of temples in the State and should review the temple administration system in consultation with Hindu religious organisations

Government should cancel its decision to take over 23 Hindu temples in Malabar.He said there was no question of the devotees permitting the take over. He alleged that the Government control over temples was nothing short of denying justice to the devotees and plundering the temple wealth. “It was an irony that the Government was trying to centralise power in the case of temple administration at a time when it advocated decentralisation,”  

A meet of various Hindu organisations, to be held in June, would chalk the second phase of an agitation aimed at `saving temples from the clutches of politicians.’
