Singh is reported to have said this to a delegation of PCC leaders who met him at the Raj Bhavan in Kolkata.

PCC leaders requested him to explore invocation of Article 355 in the state in view of the "throttling of democracy and spurt in political violence in left-ruled West Bengal".

WBPCC working president Subrata Mukherjee told PTI that Prime Minister had listened to the delegation's views and advised the PCC leadership to embark on a mass movement. Congress Legislature Party leader Manas Bhunia was also in the delegation.
