AGARTALA: The Chief Ministers of several north-eastern States on Wednesday condemned the arrest of Republic TV Editor in Chief Arnab Goswami in Mumbai, terming the action as "a black-day for Indian democracy" and an attack on "free speech and democracy".

Terming Goswami's arrest as a direct attack on free speech and democracy, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that this is a blatant misuse of state power against Goswami. "It gives us a reminiscence of the Emergency by the Congress and its allies. This must be condemned in the loudest voice," said Deb in a tweet.

Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said that physically assaulting and arresting Goswami is an attack on press freedom. "I strongly condemn such politically motivated act of the Maharashtra government," he said. (IANS)
