Convened by the Delhi A'chik Youth Association (DAYA), the meeting discussed in detail ther options left for an effective strategies to stop the problems confronting the people hailing from the north eastern region.
DAYA general secretary F.Silkam Sangma in his address said regional discrimination is rampant in the national capital adding that it is not confined only to the people from North East India which was evidenced by the common use of words like "Bihari" and "Jat" in a derogatory sense.
He maintained that most of the problems were because of the generalisation of the people from North East India due to the misdeeds of a few black sheeps.
He said if the general public of Delhi are generalised then the north eastern people would be the biggest fools.
He appealed to the gathering to separate and understand the difference between the issues of sexual harassment and regional discrimination.
Earlier all the harassment issues were being handled by the respective Student or Welfare Organisations of the different communities hailing from the different states of North East India in Delhi, he said.
The DAYA General Secretary said the NESUFD in general and DAYA in particular is not interested in short term reactionary measures like "Rallies" which are but a small part of the solution as is evidenced by the formation of the NESJAC and subsequent rallies held in the sensational Dhaula Kuan rape case that rocked the nation a couple of years ago.
There were a number of very fruitful strategies which evolved on the meeting. The General Secy of the DAYA thanked the gathering for their feedback and wished everyone all the best for the proposed rally.
