Travancore Devaswom Board manages the Lord Ayyappa temple in Kerala

With no women able to visit the Shabarimala temple despite the Supreme Court order allowing them to do so, the Travancore Devaswom Board decided against filing a report in the Supreme Court.

The Travancore Devaswom Board manages the Lord Ayyappa temple in Kerala.

But the board decided that it will not file a report in top court on the situation prevailing in Sabarimala.

The Travancore Devaswom Board also said filing a review petition against the top court verdict right now has no relevance.

The board had earlier said it would file a report in the top court on the tense situation in Sabarimala.

Hearing on the 19 petitions challenging the apex court verdict has been posted for November 13.

The board’s move comes a day after Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan asserted that the state government was not in favour of filing a review petition.

Vijayan had also criticised the temple head priest and Pandalam Royal family, associated with the Sabarimala temple.

Meanwhile, the Kerala government has decided to sanction Rs. 142 crore for implementing various schemes under the Sabarimala Masterplan development project, CM Vijayan said.
