Thiruvananthapuram: The Supreme Court verdict on September 28 allowing the entry of women of all age groups into Kerala’s Sabarimala temple has invited the wrath of a section of Keralites and many other people around the world.

There are reports that former BJP state president and current Governor of Mizoram Kummamam Rajasekaran would return to state politics. PS Sreedharan Pillai was elected as the Kerala state BJP president on July 30. 

Rajasekharan himself clarified stating, “I have no intimation regarding any decision to send me back to Kerala. I can only obey the direction of the president.”

Rajasekharan also said that if he had worked according to his wishes, he would not have gone to Mizoram as the governor. Earlier in a meeting, a senior leader had claimed that Rajasekharan was given ‘punishment transfer’ as the Governor of Mizoram during the end of his term. The same leader had also said that attempts to grasp power with money and influence will not be tolerated in state BJP.

Kummanam Rajasekharan also explained, “Now I am doing the duty entrusted with me sincerely. I will do any job assigned to me by the President.” He added that he would not make any comment on the Sabarimala issue since he is the governor of Mizoram.

Earlier, there were criticisms that the protests launched by the BJP and Sangh Parivar organisations over Sabarimala issue lacked proper coordination. It was under these circumstances that rumours spread stating that Kummanam Rajasekharan would return to state politics for a better Kerala.
