He added that he has been unwell for quite some time and hence his doctors have advised him to rest. The leader had also said that even though he would leave the organisation he will continue his work for the organisation till his last breath.

The AASU leader also reacted to the statements and allegations of him being side-lined due to the autocracy of the present leadership (under Dipaka Kumar Nath) which was labeled by a former AASU activist Simanta Thakuria. He said, “I disdain the misinterpreted comments on me by a recently-resigned state executive of the AASU.”

He went on to reiterate his stand on abstaining from politics and stated that he would continue to work for the interests of the indigenous people of Assam by remaining outside the circle of politics and political parties. Earlier MLA Satyabrata Kalita from Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) had appealed Bhattacharya to join AGP.
