BJP MP Kiren Rijiju today strongly protested against the attack on Arunachal Pradesh students in Chanakyapuri yesterday and said the people in the mainland were becoming into lerant towards the people of North-Eastern states. In a letter to Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, Mr Rijiju said Arunachal student who gathered for a programme, were attacked by local goons in the NDMC market area and many were in a serious condition. The goons hurled racial remarks against the students asking them to go back to China. There have been spate of incidents, racial abuses, discrimination and sexual harassments in recent times. "I have met the students personally and have urged the police to take strong action", he said. He said the governemnt should take proactive actions, but the response have only been 'token'. The PM should use his good office to take serious action against such crimes, against people from Northeast in the country, particularly in Delhi. The NDMC market is a breeding ground for trouble and it should be demolished and such attacks would not be in national interest, he cautioned.
