Changanachery : NSS made it very clear that they would pursue legal action against the Devaswom bill that the government has placed in the assembly and passed to the subject committee to seek the President’s approval. NSS reiterated that the government should have held prior discussion with all Hindu organizations before presenting the bill in the assembly. In a press release the NSS Leaders asserted that only the High Court has the powers to control the Devaswom board in accordance with the Hindu Religious Institutions Act 1950. Thereby, the LDF Government’s move to hurriedly present such a bill without even having any consultation with various Hindu organization affected by the contents of the bill is not at all acceptable. It has been interesting notice that some of the Christian and Muslim leaders also opinioned that the government should not have presented such a bill. Interestingly, SNDP General Secretary Vellappally Natesan supported the bill and went to the extent of telling that SNDP would stage Dharna at the gates of those MLAs opposing the bill in the assembly.
