UP Polls: BJP asks EC to deploy women police to check voter ID's of Burqa-clad women

Ahead of the 6th and 7th phase of Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party, in an attempt to curb bogus voting, has written to the Election Commission (EC) demanding that women police officials be deployed at polling booths to check voter ID's of Burqa-clad women. In the letter to EC, BJP also asked the latter to deploy paramilitary forces at polling stations in the sensitive areas.
