Updated : May 30, 2019 06:14 PM IST
Muraleedharan became the first BJP leader from Kerala to be nominated to the Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra.
Muraleedharan, who belongs to the Hindu Ezhava community, was in his school days an active member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).
The BJP in Kerala has just one legislator in the 140-member Kerala Assembly and none in the Lok Sabha.
