"The Governor's statement is being misinterpreted. The state government under Tarun Gogoi is misleading the people regarding his (Acharya's) statement", BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said at a press conference here.
"Tarun Gogoi government does not have any issue to talk about, so they are trying to mislead people with a non-issue", he added.
Asked if the Centre will concede to the state government's demand of removing Acharya and appoint a permanent Governor, Ram Madhav indicated that it is unlikely at this moment.
"People always demand many things. They say he must be removed or she must be removed. Is it done in that way?", the BJP leader said.
On November 21, Acharya stoked a controversy with his 'Hindustan is for Hindus' remark. While clarifying it the next day, he commented that Indian Muslims are 'free to go to Pakistan' escalating the row and sparking a demand for his removal by Gogoi and others.
