    Bezbaruah expressed his disappointment over the Union Home Ministry saying that the members were not notified prior to the formation of the committee. However, the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) who has been a participant of the Assam Accord made it clear in the very beginning not to be a part of the committee. Meanwhile, veteran journalist DN Bezbaruah assured to continue as a panel member to give an answer to the government with some harsh words. He further said that he is not surprised on resigning the members one by one and that the committee will serve for a very little time. At first Bezbaruah also wants to resign from the panel member but later decided to stay as he has something to say to the government some unkind words and someone has to say as this is not a minor issue.
