KERALA: Kerela’s Agriculture Minister and CPI(M) member VS Sunil Kumar on Friday said women activist Trupti Desai who has been held up in Kochi International Airport since her arrival, is an RSS member. “Trupti Desai is an RSS activist. Behind her plans to enter the temple, there is the thinking of RSS,” Kerala Minister VS Sunil Kumar said.
Trupti is the founder of Bhumata Brigade, a Maharashtra based activist organization. She has been at the helm of movements campaigning for women’s entry to religious places. Trupti Desai and the Bhumata Brigade were stuck inside Cochin International Airport for over 12 hours after she landed there on Friday at 4.40 am in order to make her way towards Sabarimala temple.
The CPI minister further said that the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh and BJP were trying to exploit the situation to their benefit. “But their fight is against the Supreme Court,” he said.
