PUDUCHERRY: For the benefit of UT pilgrims, who visit Sabarimala, the Puducherry Pradesh Congress committee has urged the government to take immediate steps to get five acres of land near the famous shrine from Kerala, and construct a building to enable devotees from Puducherry to stay and relax.

Pointing that the number of Sabarimala pilgrims from Puducherry is increasing year after year, PCC spokesperson, A V Veeraraghavan  said the UT government should get in touch with Kerala government directly or through a letter and request allotment of five acres of land.

He added that he had written to CM Rangasamy and Hindu Religious Institution secretary in this regard.

It may be noted that Kerala CM Oommen Chandy had taken a decision to provide Telangana five acres of land at Sabarimala to construct its own building for the benefit of pilgrims from that state.

This information was revealed in the ‘Southern States Endowments Ministers Conference’ on arrangements to be made for Sabarimala pilgrimage this year, at Thiruvananthapuram.
