The north eastern people residing in Delhi have come down heavily on Arvind Kejriwal alleging racial discrimination as he was dead opposed to the appointment of Shakuntala Gamlin as his chief secretary. 

Talking to Assam Times in the capital a section of the north easterners alleged that the daughter of Assam is a victim of racial discrimination. 

Neera Saikia who has been pursuing degree course said that Kejriwal doesnot want anybody from the north east to top the bureacracy. "Why is he so scared of Shakuntala who is a senior IAS officer. What wrong goes with the north east lady after the constitutional authority cleared the decks."
