H Ibomcha, “the army chief”, MFL, KCP, speaking at the celebration, stressed that even before “we have liberated Kangleipak from the colonial yoke of Indian imperialists, we, the Kangleichas must establish our own economy and not rely on handouts from mainland India. All of our means of production are taken away from us by the Indian colonial process, leaving us fully reliant on them in order for them to maintain colonial dominance in the region”.
In line with the chairman’s message, he stressed the urgency of beginning an ideological debate to re-energize the revolutionary struggle and the necessity of moving beyond factional politics, which has become a culture among the Kanglei revolutionary class”, said the release issued by KYKL.
