New Delhi, March 15 (IANS) The BJP on Tuesday alleged that law and order situation in the poll-bound Kerala is detriorating constantly and urged the Election Commission to take “strongest measures” for ensuing free and fair polls.

“We do not expect free and fair polls in Kerala. We will appeal to the Election Commission to take strongest measures for ensuring free and fair polls in Kerala,” union minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters here.

His ministerial colleague Smriti Irani, also present at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) briefing at party headquarters, said the state is witnessing “constant deteriorating” situation on law and order front.

Citing instances of violence in the state especially against their workers, Rudy alleged there is a “match fixing” between Congress-led United Democratic Front regime and Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPI-M)-led Left Democratic Front in the state.

“This violence in Kerala against BJP supporters and workers are not being carried out only by CPI-M workers. It’s being done jointly,” he alleged, adding most of the violence are perpetrated against BJP sympathisers in areas where its clout is growing.

“BJP is surging ahead in Kerala and our local alliance there has created a sense of insecurity among Congress and CPI-M,” he claimed.
