The court made the observations on a batch of petitions challenging the decision of the Guruvayur Devaswom Managing Committee in May this year to donate the temple funds to the CMDRF for flood hit victims in the state.
The Devaswom provided rice, groceries, blankets and clothes. Volunteer outfits brought in vegetables. The municipality started a kitchen. A total of 530 people slept peacefully at these camps. This initiative also prompted the government to start camps for those living on the streets.
