AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa on Wednesday accused the ruling DMK of “disturbing” law and order in Tamil Nadu and appealed to the Election Commission of India to take all steps to protect it.

“Ironically, those who are supposed to guard law and order in the State are disturbing it,” she said in a statement.

Mentioning some incidents across the State, including one where a woman sub-inspector was allegedly attacked by a DMK functionary in Nagapattinam district, Ms. Jayalalithaa said, “If this is the case with a police SI, what will happen to common people?”

The Election Commission should take action to protect law and order in the State, she added.

Ms. Jayalalithaa had on Tuesday demanded that the EC take “sufficient safeguards” including deploying Central paramilitary forces during counting of votes on May 13 and record the entire process.
