Banire said, “People agitate only when they feel offended and deprived, but the solution for deprivation does not lie in restructuring. It will never end.

“If you split today, some people in the split group will still rise up later to agitate for one thing or the other.

“It does not solve our problems. What matters is that we must be happy, and to be happy, it means we must enjoy equal opportunity under this system.

“It is deprivation and hunger that are causing problems facing the country today.

“When we eliminate all inequalities, everybody will be happy with the system.

“When hunger is taken care of, most of the issues threatening our unity will go”.
