Sabarimala row: All-party meeting underway

Thiruvanthapuram: Kerala government Thursday is convening an all-party meet to find a way out of the impasse at Sabarimala.

The meeting is all the more important with just two days left for the annual two-month long festival at the hill shrine to start.

CM Pinarayi Vijayan would meet leaders of political parties first, before having audience with representatives of tanthri family and Pandalam palace.

Background to the meeting is particularly noteworthy, as the Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a plea seeking stay on its verdict allowing women of all age groups to the temple.

However, in what appears to be a flimsy hope for protesters, the court would hear review petitions in open court on January 22.

Meanwhile, upwards of 500 women formerly belonged to the barred age-group have signed up for temple visit. This includes rights activist Trupti Desai and six others who in a letter to Chief Minister has sought protection.

When the temple opened in two spells in October, nearly a dozen women tried but failed to enter the temple amid churning chaos.

Subsequently, police arrested more than 3,700 people, and registered 546 cases for violence.
