''Over 4000 innocent people were illegally arrested/detained. So BJP will observe 1-day fast in front of DGP office in Trivandrum & march to SP office in other districts on Oct 30. 8th Nov onwards, there will be 6-days Rath Yatra from Kasargood to Sabarimala,'' he added.
The Rath Yatra will be staged from November 8 to 13. The Yatra is planned in a way that it starts from Kasaragod Madhur temple premises and concludes in Pathanamthitta district.
When the Rath Yatra concludes at Pathan-amthitta on November 12, it will see 50, 000 women protestors convening against the state government's ha-sty attitude in implementing the Supreme Court verdict on Sabarimala. The top court is to consider the review petitions and writ petitions on the next day.
