Thiruvananthapuram: The BJP hopes that Lord Ayyappa will make a difference to the fortunes of the party in the Lok Sabha elections in Kerala. For, the BJP had fought hard to uphold the traditions and faith of the Sabarimala devotees after the Supreme Court passed its verdict allowing the entry of young women in the hill shrine.

State president P.S. Sreedharan Pillai told reporters that the party will not make Sabarimala a political weapon, but will bank on the feelings of the devotees to win the elections. The discussion on the candidates has been completed, he said at the BJP state headquarters here.

 

Mr Pillai flayed Mr Shashi Tharoor MP for casting aspersions on the women who had attended the Namajapa rally during the Sabarimala agitation. Mr Tharoor had alleged the other day that the women who protested against the Supreme Court verdict were suffering from ‘Stockholm syndrome.’ Mr Pillai said this was an insult to lakhs of women devotees.

"Tharoor should apologise to the women as he will contest the polls from Thiruvananthapuram. Otherwise, the KPCC should reveal whether it supports his views," Mr Pillai said.
