According to Mr Gogoi, those found guilty will have to face the music. He strongly criticized the former Chief Minister for saying the retired justice Mr Saikia a Congressman and equally flayed the Asom Gana Parishad for opposing the Saikia Commission saying why they did failed to do while the commission was set up to unearth the truth.
