The Revolution - Ïada la ka Ri (protect our land) on Sunday strongly condemned Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy’s statement comparing the status of “non-tribals” people living in Meghalaya with Kashmiri pandits in 1991.  “We never expected that this kind of biased and fabricated statement will come from a person who holds the highest constitutional office  in the State and reside among the peace loving people of our beloved land,” former legislator, Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit said.  “His frequent statements against the interest of the indigenous people suggest that he was sent purposely by the Central government to create a turmoil in our State for reasons best known to them. We would like to state that this kind of a person is not needed in our State,” he added. 

Roy on Friday had told reporters that the non-tribals in the State were in a thoroughly demoralised state.

“I got the impression their position and status is something like that of the Kashmiri Pandits of 1991 when they had to leave the Kashmir Valley,” Roy had stated.  Basaiawmoit, who is pioneering “The Revolution - Ïada la ka Ri, said, “As a community, we should not take his (Roy) statement lightly, perhaps he was made to come to our State with a pre-planned mind to provoke and stir up the minds of the indigenous people of Meghalaya so that they will react thoughtlessly.” Basaiawmoit also urged upon the indigenous people of the State to not fall into this sinister plan.
