BJP blames govt, TDB for lack of facility

PATHANAMTHITTA: The BJP has criticised the State Government and the Travancore Devaswom Board for their “failure” to provide facilities to crores of Sabarimala pilgrims with hardly three months left for the new festival season. Addressing newsmen here on Wednesday, BJP district president T R Ajitkumar said that the laxity on the part of the government and the TDB was the cause for not launching projects for providing basic facilities to the pilgrims.

Ajitkumar alleged that since the TDB members were non-believers, they were not keen to initiate measures for launching projects for pilgrim facilities.

He urged the TDB to take immediate steps to scrap the toll gate at Chalakayam in view of the additional burden on pilgrims.

Ajitkumar also sought early measures to end the 11-month-old Chengara land agitation. He blamed the CPM for the violent incidents in Pathanamthitta town and nearby areas.

Ajitkumar said party state president P K Krishnadas would inaugurate the district-level party special convention here at 10 a.m. on July 12.Party leaders like C K Padmanabhan and M T Ramesh would participate in the convention.K K Sasi, Elanthur Haridas and Prasad Anandabhavan were present at the news conference.
