Crowd management in Tirupati is a model for Sabarimala: Supreme Court

kk

NEW DELHI: While hearing a petition seeking action to control the crowd at Sabarimala, the Supreme Court on Monday praised the arrangements at Tirupati, Golden Temple and Shri Mata Vaishno Devi temples. The court also mentioned how beautifully and systematically the crowd is managed there. The court also referred to the 'vibe' that visitors experience when they visit the Golden Temple.

KK Ramesh, a resident of Madurai, filed the petition demanding that mandatory registration should be introduced in Sabarimala on the model of Amarnath and that a master plan should be prepared. However, a bench comprising justices Suryakant and KV Viswanathan was not ready to interfere in the demand.

The bench directed the petitioner to approach the Kerala High Court first. "Do not play the second innings first. Kerala High Court has a special Devaswom Bench. The High Court is aware of the situation, topography and sentiments of the devotees at Sabarimala," the court said.

Following this, the petitioner withdrew his petition.

The Supreme Court criticized the petitioner for filing a Public Interest Litigation by taking information from the internet.

"You must study things before submitting the petition. Visit places like Gurudwaras. Take note of the cleanliness in such places," the court said.
