Now the RSS will not be able to set up its shakhas in the temples of Kerala. Along with this, any political party will be able to do any political program in the temple premises. The Travancore Devaswom Board, which manages the temples in Kerala, has issued a circular in this regard.

The Travancore Devaswom Board, which manages temples in Kerala, has banned Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) branches in all temples in the state. The board has said that in all the 1248 temples under its management, only religious rituals will now be held and RSS shakhas will not be allowed to be set up. The board has said that no political activity or program will also be allowed in the temple premises.
The board has made it clear in its circular that action will be taken against the officers who do not follow this order. Keep in mind that the Travancore Devaswom Board had issued a similar circular in March 2021 and again in 2016 that no other type of activity, especially political events, should be held in the temple premises other than religious rituals. But after receiving information that RSS shakhas are being set up in some temples of the state and Sangh programs are being organized, the board has issued a fresh circular. After the issue of this circular, setting up of RSS shakhas, arms training and other exercises have been banned in all temple premises.
The board has said that not only the Sangh but any organization or political party will not be allowed to organize any program in the temple premises. Board officials have said that if there is any violation of this circular, it should be immediately reported to the board. The board has also urged the common people to send complaints in this regard to the board.
The Kerala Congress has also supported this decision of the board. Congress leader V D Satheesan told a newspaper that more than 90 percent of Hindus in Kerala are against the RSS, so the ban on Sangh activities in temple premises is absolutely correct.
Apart from this, the Chief Minister of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan also opposed the Sangh shakhas in the temple premises and arms training by the Sangh.
Explain that Travancore Devaswom Borj handles the management of 1248 temples in Kerala. The Board is an independent body. It was formed under the Travancore Cochin Hindu Religious Institution Act-15 of 1950. All the rituals of the famous Sabarimala temple are also conducted under the direction of this board. The Travancore Devaswom Board is headed by senior CPM leader K Ananthagopan.
