Calling upon intellectuals to ponder over the identity crisis faced by the community in India, the Chief Minister reasoned a set mindset of the people behind associating the community with Nepalis. Besides, Chamling cited the prevailing Indo-Nepal friendship treaty of 1950 primarily blurring Indian borders for Nepali citizens.
