BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday said that he will ask the centre to declare Sabarimala as a national pilgrim centre.

“NDA should come to power in Kerala to speed up the declaration of the famous hill shrine of Lord Ayyappa at Sabarimala as a national pilgrim centre,” he said.

He was speaking at an election convention held in Pathanamthitta. Recently, the prohibition of entry of women of menstrual age in the temple had attracted criticism from the Supreme Court.

Slamming the ruling UDF government over allegations of corruption and terming LDF as resorting to violence politics, Shah said that equal justice and protection to all is the BJP government’s motto.

BJP had only one open agenda and that was to dump both the Congress-led UDF and CPM-headed LDF "in the Arabian sea", he said, projecting his party as the alternative in the state where the two fronts had alternately held power.
