Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday briefed Governor P Sathasivam on the law and order situation in the state after violence erupted in the region following the entry of two women of menstruating age inside the premises of Sabarimala temple on January 2.
"He also assured the Governor that stringent action would be initiated against those involved in the violent incidents, irrespective of party affiliation," it added.
A couple of weeks ago, violent protests broke out across Kerala after Bindu and Kanakadurga climbed the Sabarimala Temple. Protesters blocked highways and forced closure of shops and markets located in various parts the region.
