IMPHAL: The Kuki Tribal Union (KTU) has stated that the Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM) cannot feign ignorance of the political history of the KTU and the fact that it came into existence much before any Kuki organization like KIM.
In a press statement of KTU, GPRN/NSCN, signed by its president Lh. Paohao and members of the steering committee stated that KIM, by reacting against the KTU in its press release on October 1, 2020 in such a demeaning manner simply exposed the Kuki’s immaturity and disunity before the people.
It is a matter of indignation that a reputed Kuki organization like KIM and its leaders have no wisdom to understand the height and depth of the KTU, politically and spiritually, he added. The statement mentioned that “this is against the interest of the Kukis as KTU has all along been upholding the socio-political interests of the Kukis. All along it has stood the test of time to act boldly as the father figure of the Kukis”.
The KTU president continued to raise a query as to who can stand up to deny the historical role of the KTU while advising the leaders of the KIM and other Kuki organizations not to confuse their political position, he added.
It added that the Kukis located in Assam, Manipur and Nagaland should understand that confused people are as good as lost people and also they must understand their identity and destination.
Further, it said that there is bewilderment as to why KIM and other Kuki organizations do not have the courage to face the reality of their history and position. It added that the interest of the Kukis will be that KIM should stop shouting against the KTU.
