Acharya's reported statement that 'Hindustan is only for Hindus' and his subsequent clarification saying Indian Muslims are 'free to go Pakistan' exposes his communal mindset as well as of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, Gogoi said.

"He (Acharya) does not know how to maintain his dignity. Governor's office is a very prestigious office. I have worked with Governors appointed during earlier NDA regime also, but never saw such a person. They all worked with dignity," Gogoi told reporters here.

"Appointment of such persons as Governor and such statements will disintegrate the country and affect the unity. He is playing divisive politics," he added.

The Chief Minister also attacked Acharya by saying that the way he is functioning, it is contradictory to Modi's claim of 'Team India' spirit and federalism.
