Speaking at an event organised by the BJP in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that an ‘Ayodhya Model’ of protest should be taken out at Sabarimala. He said that the Supreme Court verdict allowing the entry of women of all ages into the temple has hurt the ‘sentiments’ of Hindus.

The UP CM was in Kerala to boost the BJP’s election campaign in the state. According to a report by Deccan Chronicle, Yogi said, “Ayodhya and Sabarimala are equally important. There is a deliberate attempt to insult Hindus in Sabarimala and Ayodhya.”

He also went on to add that the verdict on Sabarimala is against the believers and that the Hindu society has been waiting for long for a favourable verdict in the Ayodhya case.

As per a report by the Times of India, Adityanath during his speech in Pathanamthitta, also said that the Kerala government would have to pay a heavy price in the Lok Sabha elections for its anti-devotee stand on the issue of women’s entry into the Sabarimala temple.

Addressing a gathering of around 3,000 party workers, the UP CM said, “I am sure there will be BJP MPs from Kerala to support Narendra Modi’s second term as Prime Minister.”

Adityanath said that the devotees and Hindus were fighting for Dharma and for protecting the traditions of Sabarimala.

Drawing comparisons between Sabarimala and Kumbh Mela in UP, Adityanath said that the UP government is trying to do everything possible for devotees during the Kumbh Mela but in Kerala, the government is destroying the rights of the devotees in the name of the SC verdict.

The UP CM arrived in Pathanamthitta in a helicopter at around 5.30 pm on Thursday. He also attended a meeting with the BJP leaders who are in charge of the election campaigns in Thiruvananthapuram, Attingal, Kollam and Pathanamthitta.
