Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today said that the imposition of President's rule in West Bengal was not required as the people would vote out the CPI(M)-led Left Front government.

"We don't want to oust CPI-M through imposition of President's rule. The people will do so through democratic means," she told a public meeting at Sonachura here.

"It will take only a minute to dislodge the killer CPI-M government, but ballots and democracy will say the last word and not bullets being used by the ruling party to terrorise people," she said.

Banerjee, who visited Nandigram for the first time after assuming charge as Railway Minister, said, "The Marxist government will be wiped out in the next assembly election in the state."

The Trinamool supremo who has been urging the Centre to withdraw central forces from West Midnapore, demanded army deployment "to silence the Maoists and recover the huge quantity of arms stockpiled by CPI-M."
