We have been watching how the opposition parties in Kerala protesting against the government's stand on the Sabarimala issue after the verdict of Supreme Court allowing women of all ages into Sabarimala temple.

Parties like Congress, BJP in Kerala have taken center stage in protest against the order of Supreme court on allowing women of menstruating age into Sabarimala temple and have conducted many public rallies and protests against the government's stand on the implementation of the order. They've been insisting that the State government should file a review petition itself against the order, but, however, the State government is clear on its stand on allowing women into the Sabarimala temple.

As the temple was opened for main season a fortnight ago,the Kerala police imposed section 144 prohibitory orders at Sabarimala and its base camps and took the full control over Sabarimala by putting new restrictions to devotees that they cannot stay overnight at Sannidhanam or chant Ayyappa slogans as group at Sannidhanam.

This sparked major fuzz among the opposition parties and the politicians Congress and BJP marched towards Sabarimala to protest against the prohibitory orders. They even demanded that the state government and police should immediately revoke Section 144.

The protest continued inside the assembly session where the opposition parties raised slogans against the government for putting out strict rules at Sabarimala and demanded that the prohibitory should be removed immediately.

Independent MLA PC George and also BJP MLA Rajagopal were disguised as Ayyappa devotees, wearing black color clothes and expressed their opposition.

The Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also tried to respond, but the sloganeering continued inside the assembly and the Congress MLAs tried to enter into the speaker's Dias followed by an adjournment of the house by the speaker. 

The LDF leaders say that this is the conspiracy played by the opposition parties to disrupt the assembly and they want to politicise the whole issue, a senior minister also told that the Kerala high court itself had told that prohibitory orders should remain at Sabarimala ,but opposition parties are not even ready to listen to the explanation of the government and their only aim is to create issue inside the assembly.
