Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has said that the law and order situation in West Bengal is bad. He also said that if the situation arises, President's rule should be imposed there. However, he also questioned the seriousness of BJP leaders in doing so.
"The state BJP leaders are pleading for imposing the President's rule in West Bengal. If the situation warrants so, then certainly the President's rule can be imposed in West Bengal. But our question is if the BJP leaders are serious about the issue as they appear to be from outside," he said.
"After Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the investigation into the Ponzi scam has slowed down. Has there been an agreement between West Bengal Chief Minister and the Prime Minister? There is a sense of doubt about the seriousness of BJP leaders against the state government," he added.
His comments have come after a senior RSS leader, Alok Kumar bashed the TMC for the law and order situation in Bengal after the murders of one RSS worker and his family in Bengal.
"It seems that there is no law and order in West Bengal. The only way they consider to treat their opponents is with vandalism, loot, rape and murder," said Alok Kumar. "I wonder if it is time for the Central government to consider whether the governance in West Bengal can run according to the Indian Constitution or time has come to consider the imposition of President's rule," he added.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker, his pregnant wife and their eight-year-old son were found murdered on Wednesday in West Bengal's Murshidabad district on Thursday. The neighbours informed the police after they did not see the family at Vijayadashmi celebrations and found the family dead.
