“As tribals, we are too simple, too short sighted, too short tempered, lack tolerance and patience, cannot remember the past and cannot see the future. We forget history and even our ancestors for temporary gains, temporary pleasure and temporary riches. We talk of our rights without understanding the other side of the coin” – the statement further reads.

The release further mentioned that BJP has its own dream of communal nationalism and For them it is Hindusthan, with one language – Hindi and one religion – Hinduism.

“We as tribal people do not fit in the RSS/BJP’s idea of Nationalism. We need freedom of religion. We cannot compromise our identity, culture, customs and social practices”, he maintained.

Further, in his statement Therie pointed out that BJP contesting Solo in Manipur is a big challenge to secular like minded vote.
