Kannur : Chief Miniser Pinarayi Vijayan on Sunday produced the evidence of directives of Central Government asking to issue prohibitory orders at Sabarimala. Pinarayi Vijayan read the letter from Home Ministry at a Meet the Press organized by Kannur Press Club.
In the directive given by the home ministry (No. 11034/01/2018 IS IV GoI Ministry of Home Affairs – Internal Security) was instructing to clamp “appropriate prohibitory orders” and also to keep a close watch on “dissemination of adverse information through social media” for ensuring that “no breach of law and order takes place”.
Answering a question regarding the “proof” of raising prohibitory orders on Sabarimala, he said the question sounded like one being put before Narendra Modi. Saying he was not one given to lying, Pinarayi took out the letter he had kept with him. Government hasn’t filed any cases for uttering the name of God. The Prime minister was trying to defame the state,, God's own country, unnecessarily, CM added.
Efforts were being made to distort the act of arresting the sang parivar workers who tried to create clashes in Sabarimala. The Sangh Pariwar was thinking of increasing their strength in Kerala by creating terror. They even held campaigns to resist the pilgrim’s offering to the temples. It definitely affected the income of temples. The government remedied this by allotting money from budget. They were creating unrest on Sabarimala and wanted police interventions, but the police handled the situation with restraint and the devotees wanted that situation to continue, Pinarayi Vijayan added.
