LIVE THREAD {Supreme Court verdict in the Shree Padmanabhaswamy Temple Treasure Case }

A two bench of SC headed by J. UU Lalit will decide whether the Vault B of the ancient temple could be opened despite tales of "danger" surrounding it?

Justices UU Lalit and Indu Malhotra will decide if there is a need to set up an autonomous devaswom board, like the one for #Sabarimala temple, which manages temples and has nominees from community as well state government impacting the rights of the royal family too.
J Lalit reads out the verdict:

We allow the appeal of the royal family of Travancore. Death does not effect Shebaitship of the Travancore Family. The bench gives a nod for constituting a committee headed by the district judge of Trivandrum.

Many including @ShefVaidya criticized the pvt authorities running #Padmanabhaswamytemple for the poor state of gaushala which hit the headlines last week. But no one noted that since the SC takeover of temple admin, the funds have stopped being utilized for dharmic purposes
Leave alone funding the gaushala which is run by 3rd parties near its premises.. The temple could not even fund the Shankaracharya associated with its rituals, when he was thrown out of his matha
As a result, the Pushpanjali swamiyar of Munchira Mathom had to spend nights in Trivandrum Central Railway station for 2 months when he was evicted from his matha premises by certain powerful encroachers
