Kolkata: Leader of Opposition in West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari on Saturday said that Governor Anand Bose should take concrete steps to restore normalcy in violence-hit Sandeshkhali in the next 24 hours. He gave an ultimatum saying that he would violate Section 144 and lead the BJP delegation to Sandeshkhali. After walking out of the Assembly on Saturday, BJP MLAs led by Adhikari directly reached Raj Bhavan and held a meeting with the Governor.

The Leader of Opposition said after the meeting that the state administration and police were trying to suppress the spontaneous movement of the local people arising out of grievances against the local Trinamool Congress leaders there. At any cost we will not allow the police to suppress that democratic and spontaneous movement of the local people. We have requested the Governor to take steps to ensure peace and normalcy in Sandeshkhali within 24 hours. Otherwise, BJP MLAs will gather in the Assembly complex on Monday and go to Sandeshkhali from there, even if we have to violate Section 144 there.
