Jisha murder: Union minister J.P. Nadda meets EC

New Delhi: A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation led by Union minister J.P. Nadda on Thursday met the Election Commission in connection with the alleged rape and murder of a Kerala law student, and expressed concern over the law-and-order situation in the southern state.

Kerala is slated for Assembly elections on May 16.

“We raised the issue of the law student's rape and murder. This is worse than the 2012 case of Nirbhaya,” Nadda, who is also the election in-charge of the party in Kerala, told mediapersons.

He added that Kerala Police acted only after the matter was raised in Parliament.

Expressing concern over the “deteriorating” law-and-order situation in Kerala, Nadda also referred to the alleged atrocities suffered by Dalits in the state.

"We also informed (the Election Commission) about the atrocities faced by the Dalit community in Kerala," Nadda said soon after meeting the poll panel officials.

The BJP delegation also demanded that paramilitary forces be deployed in Kerala and the assembly elections be conducted under their supervision.

Besides Nadda, the delegation comprised BJP leaders Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Meenakshi Lekhi and Anurag Thakur.
