Manipuri if we study in details and discussed can be classificd into two groups -indigenous people and non-indigenous, the Maoist asserted and termed the indigenous Manipuri as those who settled in the soil from time immemorials and their offsprings.
Those who have migrated to the state from outside can be termed non-indigenous Manipuri, the Maoist said added that Nepali and Meitei-Pangal group which do not have Manipuri surname could be included in this group. The outfit however called for bringing unity amongst different communities and collectively launch a united offensive against India to free Manipur from its colonial yoke.
