He also added, “My statement was not meant for the entire Brahman Samaj but only for the two leaders of students’ union which I said in emotion and anger. I speak straight forward to being a Tiwa person.

I seek apology to the samaj if I hurt someone’s sentiment,”

“At a press meet, AASU workers criticised me at personal level. So I became emotional. They belonged to the Brahmin community.

So I attacked them. I shouldn’t have mentioned the Brahmin community. I seek apology from the Brahmin community for the mistake,” said the MLA.

Earlier, The BJP MLA Morigaon made abusive communal comments against the Brahmins and threatened them to cut into pieces at a public meeting in Morigaon

They brought our tribes to the roads and shot dead and they are behaving like kings today. Now I will behead them, cut into pieces,”.
