"Both the Prime Minister and Chief Minister have accepted that Assam is a disturbed state and there is no peace here. Then why should Gogoi continue? The PM should dismiss this government immediately," BJP National Vice-President Bijoya Chakravarty told a press conference in Guwahati.
    
"The Union Government should recommend President's rule in the state," she added.
    
Chakravarty alleged that lawlessness as well as killings and kidnappings had increased during the last three tenures of Gogoi.

"Then what is he doing? There is a complete collapse of law and order in the state," she said.
    
Chakravarty also alleged that some members of the government have a nexus with poachers, and asked the law enforcing agencies to book them for the killing of '700 rhinos in last 10 years'.
    
Commenting on presence of Maoists in the state, Chakravarty said "Maoists are getting active here. If this CM stays here for long, then the situation in Assam will very soon be like Jharkhand or Andhra Pradesh or Chhattisgarh."
