MDMK general secretary Vaiko today lauded Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and his regime for recommendation to appoint 36 non-Brahmins as priests in temples.
Hailing the move as a "historic decision," Vaiko in a letter to the Kerala Chief Minister said, "I applaud your achievement in social justice from the core of my heart."
Stating that it was "a defining historic decision" to appoint 36 non-brahmin priests including six of them from Dalit community, he said "this achievement of your government has become a guiding light to the other States."
On October six, 36 non-Brahmins including six Dalits were recommended for appointment as priests in temples in Kerala being managed by the Travancore Devaswom Board.
It was the first time six people from the scheduled caste community have been recommended for the appointment as priests.
