Sabarimala: The shortage of Aravana, the chief prasadam of the Lord Ayyappa temple, led to disquiet among the Ayyappa devotees on Thursday night.

Devotees staged a sit-in shouting slogans against the Travanore Devaswom Board authorities in front of the holy eighteen steps during the cold night.

Even the police were unable to control them when the supply of Aravana came to a standstill. The counter opened after midnight Thursday as soon as higher officials held talks with the Devaswom executive officer.

The devotees shouted slogans against the Devaswom board as the Aravana counter was closed. This was for the first time an agitation was being witnessed at Sannidhanam.
