Removing this would accomplish nothing useful. The version number is in
various other places (e.g. readme.html), and can be deduced by probing
for the presence of other files which change between one version and
another (e.g. versions of jQuery, other included components), or can be
guessed from examining the datestamps on many unchanging files. Anyone
telling you that hiding the Generator meta tag improves security is
selling snake oil.
