"PM called and expressed his serious anguish and concern at alarmingly worrisome law and order situation. I share grave concerns of the Prime Minister, given that violence vandalism, arson, loot and killings continue unabated. Concerned must act in overdrive to restore order," tweeted the Governor tagging Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
