Sabarimala : KSRTC MD Tomin Thachankary faces legal tangle as Trvancore Devaswom Board(TDB) came out against him for handing over land leased by it, for commercial purpose.
The land in question at Nilakkal, was allotted to KSRTC purely for conducting service in the ongoing Madalam pilgrimage season. Thachankary on 7 Nov invited tender for 150 sq ft plot and found a taker who shelled out Rs 9 lakh, to set up and run a tea shop there.
Thachankary claimed the intent was to provide tea facility to staff there.
With Devaswom now mulling legal proceedings, KSRTC is trying to resolve the situation by returning the advance amount received from the bidder and scrap the deal.
