JORHAT, Nov 27 - United under the banner of Brihattar Jorhat Nagarik Sabha, several citizens here on Thursday said that they would send a memorandum to the Prime Minister with a demand to oust the present Governor PB Acharya for his �biased comments in favour of the Hindu population�.
At a meeting held at the Bisturam Barooah Hall in the city, the citizens protested �intolerance� of the Central Government towards the Muslim population and the �recent defamatory comment of BJP MP Rameswar Teli about litterateur Homen Borgohain�.
�We appeal to the Central Government to refrain from violating the citizens� freedom of speech and right to religion. The meeting adopted a resolution to send a memorandum to the Prime Minister with a demand to oust the Governor, who clearly expressed his biased and unconstitutional attitude,� opined senior citizen Bhaba Chetia, who presided over the public meeting.
Along with Chetia, several elderly citizens of Jorhat, besides college teachers, retired officers and youth were also present in the meeting.
The meeting was unanimous in the fact that no communal force should be permitted by the Government to divide the people of the State on caste or linguistic lines.
