Khas, Brahmin society meet

TEHRATHUM: Diiliram Upreti of Khas Brahmin Unity Society on Sunday said that country would disintegrate if federal states were divided on the basis of ethnicity. Inaugurating the district gathering of the society in Myanglung, he said, “States should be divided on the basis of geography.” He accused that the government had tried to erase the identity of Khas and Brahmins by listing them as other ethnic groups.
