NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court bench presided over by the Chief Justice, on Friday, ordered a five-member Constitution Bench to consider the petition relating to entry of women in Sabarimala.

The bench comprised of Dipak Misra, R Banumathi, and Ashok Bhushan had earlier requested to submit the things that need to be presented at the Constitution Bench.

The LDF government in 2007 had submitted an affidavit at the SC supporting the entry of women in Sabarimala, but the UDF government that followed said that there was no need to bring any changes to what’s already being followed.

The current LDF government initially continued with the stance of the previous UDF government but later on changed their opinion. The Constitution Bench will also analyse whether there is any legality in the stance of the state government.

The Indian Young Lawyers’ Association had approached the SC in 2006 demanding the entry of women of all ages in Sabarimala. The case was taken for consideration in 2016 after sending notices seeking clarification on the petition, following which, the SC heard detailed arguments on the case at different stages.

Now with the SC referring the case to the Constitution Bench, the verdict on the case might get further delayed.
