The Congress party will do everything to protect Manipur’s history, culture and languages. 

This was stated by top Congress leader Rahul Gandhi while campaigning in Manipur’s Imphal. 

Rahul Gandhi alleged that the “BJP and RSS have undermined” Manipur’s traditions and culture. 

“BJP and RSS come to Manipur not with respect but with a sense of superiority. On the other hand, I come with humility to learn from the diverse tribes, the hills and the valley,” said Rahul Gandhi. 

He said: “Every state has the right to have own languages, culture, history and a way of looking at themselves.”

“On the other hand, BJP believes in one ideology, one language and one culture. India is facing a battle between these two ideologies,” Rahul Gandhi said. 

“I want to preserve the harmony of Manipur,” Rahul Gandhi said.
