Sabarimala – Neglect and Loot

via HK published on November 19, 2009

Inspite of reports about Headley and Rana planning to blow up Sabarimala and Guruvayur,the Kerala Govt.’s Fireforce Department insists that they will only serve the pilgrims for 20 days out of more than 60 days of pilgrimage.

Though decision was taken in the presence of Dewasom Minister that the services of Fireforce would be made available throughout the pilgrim season , but Fireforce department under Home Ministry denied the request and reported back that they will provide their services only during the last 10 days of Mandala kaalam and during the 10 days of Makaravilakku.

Along with this neglect government looting too continue unabated to exploit the pilgrims.

Electricity board charges Rs16/- per unit instead of Rs.3/- for each unit of electricity they supply to Sabarimala.Last year Dewaswom Board had to pay more than Rs. 4 crores as electricity bills.

Devaswom Board also has to pay for police services,security cover,water authority,health department and various other department for the services they provide during the Sabarimala Pilgrimage.
