But Chakmas in the name of religion is maligning the image of Arunachal Pradesh. You know, Chakmas may belong to Buddhism, we do not have any issue, Hajongs may be Hindus, we dont have any issue. “

The AAPSU chairman added that the people of Arunachal Pradesh will never accept them (Chakma, Hajongs) as indigenous. Gandhi said,”You have been here since 50 years as a refugee with temporary settlement. And Arunachalees will never accept You (Chakma/Hajongs) as indigenous. The Chakmas and hajongs should be clear about this.”
