New Delhi, Jan 4: Commenting on the prevailing violence after the arrest of Trinamool Congress leaders, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has demanded the imposition of  President’s Rule in order to streamline the law and order situation. Swami further added that a strict action against the lawlessness should be taken against the culprits.

Venting out the anger against Modi government after the legal action initiated by CBI against TMC law maker Sudip Bandyopadhyay, student activists from TMC vandalised the BJP's state office. Few hours later, BJP leader Krishna Bhattacharya's house was attacked late Tuesday night by TMC workers.

Condemning the entire incident said Swamy, "What I would recommend our government to do is, under Article 256 to begin with, to send a direction to the state government saying that you better bring law and order under control otherwise 256 entitles the Centre to declare President's rule even if party there in power has majority in the assembly. So, this warning needs to be given under Article 256,"

He also advised central government to appoint district magistrates who would issue warrants against those involved in the violent act in order to rein the situation in Kolkata and bring the ground zero to normalcy.

Slamming Mamta for disgracing the constitution swamy said that, Law and order is direct responsibility of the state government and the chief minister is the head of that and when the ruling party attacks the opposition. He directly blamed mamta government for vicious situation in the region.
