BINDU and Kanakadurga, the two women in their 40s, who created history by defying threats from various organisations and offered prayers at Sabarimala temple on Thursday said that they were not tools of anyone and dismissed as ‘baseless’ the allegations that they were playing into the hands of police and the Government.

They also said, their aim was Sabarimala darshan and they achieved it without facing any trouble from the devotees. “All the pilgrims going to Sabarimala were very co-operative. We never had any problem from other devotees. We trekked down safely from the shrine,” Kanakadurga said.

In an exclusive interview with ‘Manorama’ channel, Kanakadurga said, “Going to Sabarimala was my own decision”. 

Dismissing the conspiracy angle being alleged by the Sangh Parivar outfits and the Opposition that the two women were playing into the hands of police and the Government, the women said, they used the police machinery to enter Sabarimala on the basis of the September 28 Supreme Court verdict allowing women of all age groups to offer prayers at the hill shrine.
