A petition to the Supreme Court has been filed asking the court to order the central government to impose President’s Rule in West Bengal

Advocate Ghanshyam Upadhyay also requested the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the deaths of sixteen BJP activists and sympathisers.

In the aftermath of post-election violence in West Bengal, a plea has been filed in the Supreme Court asking for directives to be granted to the Central government to impose President’s rule in the state under Article 356 of the Constitution.

Advocate Ghanshyam Upadhyay also requested the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the deaths of sixteen BJP activists and sympathisers.

The petitioner further asked the Court to order the Governor to submit a report to the Supreme Court on the state of law and order in West Bengal, as well as to “hold and declare that there is no rule of law in the State and that the constitutional machinery in the State is completely broken.”

“It is discernible from the evidence that has surfaced and is in the public domain as a result of reporting in newspapers/news channels that the perpetrators of the crime of massacre killings of 16 BJP workers/supporters/sympathizers are none other than TMC goons, and that such killings have taken place at the instance and behest of people in power, including Respondent no. 3 (Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee).

“The petition claims that the state, which is ruled by Mamata Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress, has abdicated its governmental powers in the matter of protecting the lives, liberties, and property of the people of the state, particularly “those who have voted rival party viz. BJP in the 2021 elections.”To prevent the country from becoming Taliban, certain political parties’ growing tendency to impose party dictatorship and suppress the people of rival political parties after gaining power must be nipped in the bud as soon as possible, according to the petition.

“This Hon’ble Court may be pleased to direct the Respondent No.4 (Central government) to exercise its duty and role as entrenched in Article 355 of the Constitution of India and advise the President to make a Proclamation for the Respondent No.1 according to Article 356 (1) of the Constitution of India,” the petitioner pleaded.
