"The Raj Bhawan takes exception to the stated views of the state Congress president and clarifies that the Hon'ble Governor has always acted in a neutral manner befitting the position held by him," a Raj Bhawan release said.

A section of the media recently stated that the state Congress president Anjan Dutta has criticised the Governor for allegedly delaying the ratification of the appointment of North Cacher Hills Autonomous Council's Chief Executive Member.

"If Dita has indeed made such statements, they are nothing but baseless aspersions cast on the Governor who holds the highest office in the state," the release said. "A false and baseless accusation to even think that the Governor has acted in any manner which is tantamount to showing any favour to anybody," it cited.
