Kerala will witness several yatras led by the Congress and the NDA from Thursday aimed at protecting the faith and traditions of Sabarimala.
The BJP will launch its ‘Sabarimala Protection Rath Yatra’, led by party state president P S Sreedharan Pillai, from Madhur in Kasargod on Thursday. BJP national leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will flag off the yatra which will culminate at Pathanamthitta with a massive rally on November 13.
Speaking to media, BS Yeddyurappa said,”Sabarimala Rath Yatra that begins from Mattur today will reach Sabarimala on 30th. Our culture has always given prominence to women and treated them with respect. It’s all because of Kerala government and its failure to handle the case before Supreme Court that situation has become tensed.”
