Hearing reports that a new petition has been filed in the Supreme Court by a lawyer who was not anywhere in picture in the main sabarimala case seeking non-implementation the SC’s Sabarimala judgment. Though at first glance it may appear to be in favour of the protesting devotees, there are enough reasons to doubt the real intentions. The court is unlikely to give such a relief in which case the Pinarayi government will use that to launch another crackdown.
In a sinister move, the police have removed all journalists except Janam TV. A large number of CPI(M) cadres have already climbed Sabarimala to create tension.
