Kochi: Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala on Monday targeted Kerala Chief Minister Pinarai Vijayan and asked if police action against the devotees in 'Sannishanam' was 'Operation Blue Star', and asked whether Hitler's rule was in the state. More than 30 protesters were taken into pre-occupation custody on Sunday night after a fresh start in the Nadpandal area of Sannishanam. Meanwhile, hundreds of devotees protested against police restrictions. Chennithala said that people who took the flag of the show were real devotees. They were not BJP workers or militants.
Significantly, in June 1984, the Army launched Operation Blue Star to evict the terrorists hidden in the Golden Temple complex of Amritsar. Opposition leader in the state assembly, Chinnithala, accused the ruling CPI-M led LDF alliance to stop the freedom of worship in Sabarimala and demanded that the government remove Section 144. Announcing the open agitation against the state government on this issue, the Congress leader said that if the state government did not withdraw the injunction, the opposition UDF delegation would violate it on Tuesday.
Chennithala said that in the delegation he himself, former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, UDF convener Beni Bihananan, IUML leader MK Munir, Kerala Congress (M) leader PJ Joseph, RSP leader NK Premchandran, CMP leader CP John and forward Devarajan of the block will be included which will go to the temple on Tuesday. Earlier, a senior Congress leader alleged that the government was trying to put a "stop" of being a worker of the Sangh Parivar on Ayyappan devotees and it would help the RSS to draw people into its fold.
Chennithala said, 'It is the police's arbitrariness. The innocent devotees who wanted to seek shelter in Valia Nadpandal (covered path) have also been arrested. They are not all Sangh Parivar workers who came there to create trouble. What is the rule of Hitler (Nazi ruler Adolf Hitler) in Kerala? ' He requested the government to take action against devotees who reached the temple to disrupt peace.
Chennithala said that the arrest of the real devotees who climbed on the hills to worship can not be tolerated. The temple has been opened for the 64-day annual pilgrimage session on Friday. On September 28, the Supreme Court gave permission for the women of the age group to enter the temple in a system after which the conflict continues.
