Kerala to build a ‘women’s wall’ on new year day to prevent the state from ‘sliding back into medieval madness’

A million women are expected to participate in forming this 600 km long 'wall'

The Kerala government has announced to build a 600 km long ‘women’s wall’ on the new year day to prevent Kerala from ‘sliding back into medieval madness’ as tweeted by Thomas Isaac, Finance Minister of Kerala.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who was speaking after a meeting with socio-cultural organisations in Thiruvananthapuram said, ”No one can push back the progressive society of Kerala into the dark ages”.

The meeting was organised with prominent caste-based organisations in order to seek their support following the protests by Ayyappa devotees all over Kerala against the entry of women of all ages into Sabarimala after the Supreme Court verdict.

The Chief Minister while seeking support of the “progressively-thinking” minds of the state to save the secular fabric of the state said, “As part of the combined efforts of all these organisations which took part in the meeting, a women’s wall will be formed on January 1 from the northern district of Kasargode till Thiruvananthapuram, to show the country the secular and progressive mindset of the state”.

Meanwhile, a four-member team reportedly picked by BJP President Amit Shah, has arrived in Kerala to get a first-hand account of the situation in the State. The team consists of Saroj Pandey, Vinod Sonkar, Prahlad Joshi and Nalin Kumar Kateel who will submit their report to Amit Shah within 15 days. The team will also meet the Panadalam Royal family.

Vijayan, on Wednesday, had said that Sabarimala won’t be allowed to become an Ayodhya.

B Sreedharan Pillai, the BJP State President, has announced that the party leaders would launch an indefinite hunger strike before the secretariat to raise their demands that include the lifting of prohibitory orders and providing basic amenities to Ayappa devotees in and around the temple.

Pillai told that the party is planning a 15-day-stir, as of now and further course of the agitation will be decided by the party after taking into consideration the CPI(M)-led LDF government’s stand on their demands.
