The BJP is training its guns against the Kerala Government on the violence in the wake of the Sabarimala issue and has called for dismissal of the Government and imposition of President's rule.
This stance of the BJP to take the protest against entry of young women to Sabarimala and protection of traditions and rituals to the national stage was voiced by party MP Nishikant Dubey.
In his demand for President’s rule in the State, Dubey in his address to the Lok Sabha on Monday said the law and order situation in Kerala had worsened, calling for Central action.
He said the attack on party's Rajya Sabha member V Muraleedharan’s house was part of a murder attempt. “The State Government is hunting the BJP and RSS,” he alleged.
Houses of BJP-RSS leaders and activists were being vandalised and women and children were not spared of attacks in Kerala. This not only called for a probe by a judicial commission, but also dismissal of the State Government and imposition of President's rule, he added.
Minister Smriti Irani said the more than 6,700 people had been arrested more than 2,500 cases filed during the recent hartal not pointed to the deteriorating law and order in the State. There was protest by BJP MPs inside and outside Parliament demanding action against the Pinarayi government.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a public meeting in Andhra Pradesh too expressed concern over the “deteriorating law and order” in Kerala and attacks against BJP leaders and their houses.
