#i_boycottmyvote campaign in the time of #JusticeForJisha

But now, after the grotesque killing of the Dalit girl, which shocked the nation, some in the online media has come out with more provocative hashtag calling for boycott of poll if the police fails to arrest killers of the 29 year old Dalit girl. Kerala is going to polls on 16 May.
Their idea of doing this is for spreading an awareness about the protection of the women before every body going to polling booth. ‘People should take a stand about the political stand on this matter, we have to do more campaigns regarding gender equality and rights for the women, other ways these kinds of incidents will happen again and again’- Said a campaigner.
