Tantri Was Not Appointed By Lord Ayyappa: Minister MM Mani
Kollam: Minister MM Mani against Sabarimala tantri has sparked a controversy when he said the head priest at Sabarimala 'was not appointed by Lord Ayyappa'. The Minister said that despite a tantri, married man, performed the pujas and rituals of the temple, Lord Ayyappa was not affected. The tantri is inviting punishments for violating the Supreme Court order, Mani said. He confidently said that he can take 50,000 women to the hill temple and no force can restrain them from entering Sabarimala temple.
