Did police fail to manage Thrissur pooram? ADGP directed to submit report

pooram

THRISSUR: The police have been instructed to check for any lapses in the management of the Thrissur Pooram. The ADGP in charge of law and order will investigate and submit a report to the government. Sources related to the Home Department said that further action will be taken based on the report. So far, the DGP has not asked for a report on the incidents that created a big controversy. Following this, it is reported that the Home Department has directly sought a report. It is important to note that the process is being sped up, especially with the footage of the Commissioner stopping the Pooram also coming out.

With the Lok Sabha elections around the corner, the people's representatives are also very unhappy with the unnecessary restrictions imposed by the police on the Thrissur Pooram. Minister K Rajan had strongly reacted against the tightening of the conditions by the forest department before Pooram. Frontline leaders are also protesting against the police for disappointing the people by cracking down on firecrackers.

Even during the procession of Tiruvambadi Bhagawathi in the morning on Pooram day, police intervention caused tension. The problem was that even the Devaswom officials were not allowed to stand with the elephants. Roads were blocked, inconveniencing people. Due to a lack of time control, vehicles were reaching near the procession.

Even when the Panchavadyam started at the Mutt, the police intervened, rejecting committee members. There is also a complaint that a priest of the North Temple was stopped when he tried to give water to an elephant in the Paramekkavu section suffering from distress.

Thiruvambadi Devaswom has warned of severe protests if unnecessary restrictions on officials continue for the next Pooram. There was a significant protest against the city police commissioner for the lathi charge by police during Puram last year. The Thiruvambadi section clarified that it cannot be tolerated this year as well.
