We should make sure that we don’t lose our focus.” Sreedharan Pillai to his Co-workers during the speech and he also said that Sabarimala Tantri Kantaru Rajeevaru had contacted him before announcing that he will close the ‘nada’ if there was any violation tantri had called him when women were trying to enter the shrine during the puja.
Sreedharan pillai refused to respond to the questions relating to the audio clips. Said he can’t comment on an issue which is under the consideration of Supreme Court.
