Congress President Rahul Gandhi had earlier said that all women should be allowed to enter the Sabarimala temple. However, on Saturday, he changed his stance stating that he cannot take an "open-and-shut" position on the issue as there is validity in the arguments of both the sides.

Gandhi was present at a press conference in Dubai and said the issue is much more complicated than what it seems and he would leave it to the people of Kerala to decide.

However, he admitted that he has changed his stance on the topic. "After I spoke to the people in Kerala and the Pradesh Congress Committee team in the state and they explained the details, I realized that the issue is much more complicated and both sides have a valid position. I would leave it to the people to decide on this," he said.

However, Twitterati couldn't stop trolling him as the 2019 Lok Sabha elections are around the corner. Some also accused him of sailing on two boats.

The Supreme Court's judgment had called the tradition ban almost similar to untouchability and had allowed women of all ages to enter the temple.
