Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get purge calligra
sudo apt-get autoremove

Depending on how you installed Project Neon, you would:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:neon/ppa/ 

sudo apt-get purge project-neon-kdeplasma-addons project-neon-session


sudo apt-get purge project-neon-kdepim project-neon-common

Or as Beni Bogosel said you can use synaptic.

Try using one of the software package managers Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center. Open, for example, Ubuntu Software Manager, search for Calligra and press the remove button.
