Swamy seeks dismissal of WB government

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today demanded the dismissal of the Left Front government in West Bengal for its ''failure'' to safeguard the fundamental rights of the people of the state and in the context of Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi's remarks on the latest developments in Nandigram.

The Centre should invoke Article 356 of the Constitution,'' he said in a statement here, while demanding that the Home Minister should call a report from the Governor on the law and order situation in the state.

Dr Swamy said the Governor had gone on record saying that the ''Left Front government had not done enough to prosecute the CPI(M) criminals who killed innocent males and raped young girls of Nandigram.'' He said Mr Gandhi had already made out a glaring prima facie case for dismissal following the incessant genocidal killings of innocent villages of Nandigram since mid-March this year.

''The West Bengal police is also increasingly being used as a private army to settle scores of private moneyed people and CPM leaders, as the Rizhwanur murder case, now entrusted to the CBI, shows clearly,'' he said.
