Devaswom Board ‘Ready To Compromise’
Shabarimalai: In what could be seen as a breakthrough in the ongoing Sabarimalai protests, the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) president A Padmakumar has said on Thursday, 18th October 2018 evening, that board is willing to file the review petition if protesters call off their agitation.
"We're ready to compromise. Will the protesters call off agitation if the board files review petition? Padmakumar said.
"Board is free to take independent decisions. It can take a call on review petition as well," Devaswom minister Kadakampally Surendran said.
