Wednesday 07th December 2022 05:17 EST

The Kerala High Court last week live-streamed its proceedings on YouTube for the very first time. The court held a special sitting on Saturday to hear a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the notification issued by the Travancore Devaswom Board inviting applications for the post of chief priests in Sabarimala and Malikappuram Temples. The move came after the request made by Sijith TL, one of the petitioners in the case before the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court. The special sitting of a Division Bench consisting of Justice Anil K Narendran and Justice PG Ajithkumar was streamed live on YouTube. Sijith filed this writ petition along with Vijeesh PR who are qualified Priests/Archakas as per the notification issued by the Travancore Devaswom Board except the condition that the applicant shall belong to Malayal Brahmin born in Kerala.
