Though there was no survey conducted to name the ‘Bad chief minister of India’, search engine giant Google has popped up Kerala CM Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s name.
Pinnari Vijayan has been facing flak for ‘poor handling’ of the violence in Kerala. The Indian state has been witnessing unprecedented violence between workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the CPI(M) and both parties have accused each other of orchestrating violence in the state. The state witnessed widespread clashes following a hartal called by the right-wing groups over the entry of women in Sabarimala.
Kerala is facing intense protest over the entry of two women of menstruating age into the Sabarimala, nearly four months after the Supreme Court quashed age-old restrictions that prohibited women in menstruating ages (10-50) from entering the Lord Ayyappa shrine.
Two women Kanakadurga, 44, a CPI(ML) activist from Kozhikode district and Bindu, 42, a government employee from Malappuram, became the first women of menstruating age to enter the Sabarimala Temple and offering prayers on Wednesday. The act was denounced by pro-Hindutva outfits which saw it as a breach of their centuries-old tradition.
