National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma on Monday sought President’s rule in West Bengal after visiting the violence-hit Sandeshkhali.

Her recommendation came days after the National Commission of Scheduled Castes (NCSC) chairperson Arun Haldar made a similar recommendation after visiting the region.

“I do not think anything is possible without President’s rule in the state,” Sharma
