Guwahati: Accusing Governor PB Acharya of behaving like a RSS ‘pracharak’, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday urged the central government to appoint a new governor for the state.

Acharya has also lost his ability to serve as a governor. He has also been working more like a BJP leader and a RSS pracharak

The chief minister’s reaction came a day after a section of the media in Assam reported that the governor made a statement denoting that India should be a country for Hindus only.

Hindustan is for Hindus

However, Acharya on Sunday clarified that the media only published half of his statement.

Acharya said he had said persecuted Hindus in Bangladesh or in any part of the world have the right to come to India and live. It was the duty of the government to welcome them, he added.

Gogoi, a Congress leader, said: “By saying that Hindustan is for Hindus, the governor has not only tarnished the dignity of the gubernatorial post, but also breached the pledge he took to ensure unity and integrity of the country.”

He also appealed to the central government to appoint “a better person with broader outlook and mindset” as governor in the state.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
