Cases for causing death by negligence should be registered under Section 304 (A) of the IPC against Minister for Home Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and Minister for Devaswom Kadannappally Ramachandran for the Sabarimala stampede, said A.N. Radhakrishnan, State general secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party.
Addressing the media here, Mr. Radhakrishnan said that the death of 102 pilgrims were caused by the negligence of the State government, despite repeated reminders about the lack of facilities at one of the leading pilgrimage centres in the country.
The national leadership of BJP has decided to launch a protest against this callous attitude maintained by all State governments in recent period.
As part of this, Sushma Swaraj, Leader of Opposition and senior BJP leader, will visit Sabarimala on Wednesday and evaluate the situation there, he said.
