BJP constitutes four member team, for Sabarimala temple issue

The team will meet party workers in connection with the Sabarimala row.

With Sabarimala temple open and top court having allowed women of all ages to enter the temple, a four-member BJP team handpicked by party chief Amit Shah will visit Kerala on Sunday.

The team will meet party workers in connection with the Sabarimala row.

It is said that they will meet the devotees and party workers to get a firsthand account of what the BJP called “atrocities being committed against the satyagrahis”.

The four members comprising Saroj Pandey, Vinod Sonkar, Pralhad Joshi and Nalin Kumar Kateel will submit their report to Amit Shah within 15 days, the party said in a statement.

The team also plans to meet the Pandalam royal family, which traditionally is said to have a strong bond with Lord Ayyappa.

A large number of BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers protested outside the residence of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan last week against the detention of over 30 people at Sabarimala Temple.

Protests were also held at various places across the state in Aranmula, Kochi, Kollam, Alapuzha, Ranni, Thodupuzha, Kaladi, Malappuram and Idukki.
