Imphal: Trinamool Congress in Manipur has demanded imposition of President's rule in the state alleging 'failure' on part of the state government to protect the lives of innocent civilians.
Talking to reporters here last evening, TMC's state unit president Kim Gangte claimed innocent civilians were facing problems due to deterioration of law and order situation and almost everyday one or two persons were being killed in militancy-related incidents.
Lamenting over the present situation for being "not good" Kim said if the central rule was imposed, some lives could be saved.
The Trinamool leader recalled the government had said there were not enough forces to deal with the situation but, she claimed the forces were being used for different purposes not connected to law and order situation.
Kim alleged that the central government was 'ignorant' of the situation in Manipur, and sought the implementation of President's rule in the state.
