"I demand that the Central government immediately bring Jammu and Kashmir under the President's rule and hand over the maintenance of law and order in the state to the Indian Army," he said.
He also demanded that the Centre direct the Tamil Nadu government under Article 256 of the Constitution to move a resolution withdrawing the 'anti-national' resolution passed by the assembly urging the President to reconsider the mercy pleas of three death row convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
"If Tamil Nadu assembly does not withdraw that resolution, the Centre must recommend the imposition of President's rule in Tamil Nadu as well," he added.
