SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa has assured Fijians of Indian descent in the country that the fight for iTaukei right and existence will not be at the expense of other ethnic groups.

Speaking to Fijians of Indian descent in Wailevu, Labasa, on Wednesday night, Ro Teimumu assured them that they would be looked after.

Ro Teimumu was referring specifically to those who had suffered as a result of coups since 1987.

"Let me give you my assurance that what you have gone through since 1987, especially to our Fijians of Indian descent brothers and sisters, will never be repeated under my leadership," she said.

"To our Indo Fijian community, let me assure you that while we as indigenous Fijians are fighting for our rights and existence as a race, we will not do this at the expense of other communities in Fiji.
