GUWAHATI: The Assam Congress today said the Opposition and some other organisations' demand for imposing President's Rule in the state following the recent NDFB killings is unacceptable.

State Congress president Anjan Dutta told reporters that law and order situation in Assam was controlled only after the Congress came to power over a decade ago.

"Earlier we had sacrificed (power) and seen what happens.

 After Congress came to power in Assam, people can now be safely out till 2 AM in the morning. Under such circumstances the demand for President's Rule is unacceptable," Dutta asserted.

Gogoi had yesterday told reporters, "If the Centre wants to impose President's Rule, let them impose."

The BJP state unit, former chief minister and AGP president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, All Assam Tribal Sangha and All Bodo Students Union have demanded imposition of President's Rule following the carnage which has claimed 81 lives in Sonitpur, Kokrajhar and Chirang district since December 23.

Mahanta claimed law and order situation was worse than what it was in 1990 when President's Rule was imposed during his chief ministership.
