Speaking on the occasion, KPA Chairman Tongmang Haokip said the party was formed to ensure that the Kuki communities in the state have a platform to voice their demands, problems and their grievances.
He said this political platform will ensure two-way communication between the Kuki community and the current state government and as such will meet the needs of the Kuki community.
Furthermore, the KPA chairman said that there are currently no plans for the party to form an alliance with rival political parties, but once the elections are over, the party may consider forming an alliance with the party that has the potential to play a major role in the formation of the new government.
