BJP reiterates demand for President's rule in UP

New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday reiterated its demand for imposition of President's rule in Uttar Pradesh, saying the state government has failed to provide security to people in the clash-hit Muzaffarnagar district.

"People are not feeling safe in the state. The president must immediately dismiss the state government as it is incapable of providing security to people," said former BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

Shoot-at-sight orders were issued Monday and the army carried out flag marches in Muzaffarnagar as the toll rose to 32 in the communal riots, one of the worst in the country in recent times.
