Guwahati: BJP on Wednesday demanded the dismissal of Tarun Gogoi-led Assam government for its alleged failure in maintaining the law and order.    

"The Tarun Gogoi government has lost control over the situation. Gogoi is not ruling the state. Assam is now being run by fundamentalists, extremists, anti-socials and lumpen elements," BJP national Vice President Bijoya Chakraborty said.

"Gogoi's government should be dismissed...The sooner Gogoi is removed the better," the Lok Sabha MP said.

Chakraborty said "The Centre can impose President's rule keeping the legislative assembly under suspended animation."

Terming the current situation as "anarchy", she said it would only worse if the government remained in power.

The BJP leader had on Tuesday said that violent incidents during the 12-hour statewide bandh called by the All Assam Minority Students' Union (AAMSU) had laid bare the helplessness of the state government.

"Yesterday's events have proved that Assam does not have a government but only ministers. The police is powerless to act. Even though Gogoi is a three-time chief minister, he has lost the will to rule," Chakraborty said.

"If the Assam government had been led by any other party instead of the Congress, by now it would have been dismissed," she added.

The BJP leader also called upon the government to ban the AAMSU.

"A reign of terror was let loose by AAMSU during yesterday's bandh. The government should ban AAMSU without wasting any more time... Any organisation which tries to disrupt peace and bring discord among sections of people should be banned," she said.
