Yuvamorcha Petition – HC criticises commercialisation of Sabarimala

published on November 23, 2012

Kerala High Court Thursday criticised commercialisation of Sabarimala, a famous pilgrim centre in the state, where lakhs of pilgrims offer worship to Lord Ayyappa during the annual pilgrimage season of November-January.

A division bench comprising Justice Thothathil B Radhakrishnan and justice A V Ramakrishna Pillai observed that auctioning of space for parking vehicles and shops during the pilgrim season were conducted”even worse than abkari auction’.

The observation was made while considering a petition by Yuva Morcha against excessive parking rates at Nelakkal and Pamba and a petition for police protection was filed by a contractor.

The bench granted police protection to the contractor and directed the board to find out ways and means to stop auctioning rights for commercial purpose.
