He said that the Government of India has been ignoring the inherent rights of the Kukis and their demands for a separate state.The Kukis are distinct indigenous people in the land of their settlement, he added.
He continued that the Kuki warriors sacrificed their precious lives in defending their ancestral lands while many of its leaders were arrested and killed. However, the Government of India failed to recognise the sacrifices and contributions made of the Kukis who are defending the ancestral lands and keep neglecting their long cherished demands, he added.
He further said that until and unless the government paves the way for creation of a Kukiland, the non-SoO Kuki National Front will continue to boycott the national event.
