By filing an application in the Supreme Court, it has been pleaded that the law and order in West Bengal has collapsed. In such a situation, President’s rule should be imposed there. Actually, an NGO has been requested to ask the Center to use Article 356 and impose President’s rule in the state. The application filed by the NGO Indic Collective Trust in the Supreme Court stated that TMC workers had committed large-scale violence with BJP members after the post-election counting. The constitutional system in the state is over.
The application states that an SIT should be constituted under the superannuation of the Supreme Court, which investigates whether political people are behind these violence. The petition also called for deployment of CRPF in the state.
Earlier in the day, senior advocate and BJP national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia had also filed an application in the Supreme Court. It has requested a CBI inquiry into violent incidents in the state during and after the election process. Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress Party has returned to power in West Bengal. This new petition has been filed by the ‘Indic Collective Trust’ of Tamil Nadu through advocate Suvidutt M.S. in view of widespread violence and disrupting law and order in the state after the assembly elections in West Bengal.
Meanwhile, police said that at least six people were killed in the violence that took place in different parts of the state after the election. According to police, one of these people was killed in Kolkata. The BJP has alleged that TMC-backed goons have killed many of its activists, attacked its female members, ransacked homes, looted shops of party members and ransacked party offices. TMC has denied these allegations.
