Sabarimala issue: TDB not to file report on prevailing situation in Supreme Court

Sabarimala, TDB. Supreme Court

Thiruvananthapuram : The Travancore Devaswom Board, which manages the Lord Ayyappa temple, Wednesday decide against filing a report in the Supreme Court on the situation prevailing in Sabarimala after the top court allowed women of all age groups to enter the hill shrine. The board also said filing a review petition against the top court verdict right now has no relevance.

TDB member K P Sankara Das said the board would file a report only if the apex court asked for it. The board had earlier said it would file a report in the top court on the tense situation in Sabarimala. With regard to the review petition, he said the board would reply if the Supreme Court sought its views while considering the review petitions pending on the Sabarimala issue.

"There is no relevance of a review petition by the TDB now," he said. Hearing on the 19 petitions challenging the apex court verdict has been posted for November13. 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 and was for going ahead with implementing the apex court verdict on entry of women of all ages into the temple.
