KRM Spokesperson Manoj Rai Today said we were the one who spearheaded the movement alone. They(KKKRS) did not even lend us the support. Being a parent body we thought that they will do anything for the youth but when did we felt that they cant do anything the result was KRM which from last 2 years have been keeping correspondence with government both in State and Central Level.
He alleged that the one who did not lend support and fully was against the formation of board are now claiming to run the Board announced by State. They have send the names of proposed board administrator . We don't want any interference he added.

Arun Prakash Rai secretary of KKKRS Kalimpong told that KRM was the one who were agitating and we were working on documentation . He said in spite of making our community a laughing subject they should focus on how to build a strong organization.
