Northeastern students face racial discrimination, says Mukul Sangma

New Delhi, Apr 30 (ANI): Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma strongly presented his niece Dana M Sangma's suicide case as ' racial discrimination' against students from northeast India in Delhi.

He wanted the authorities to find the complete truth and demanded enactment of new stringent laws that can act as a deterrent to all those who have limited knowledge of the existing diversity of country.

"I feel strongly that the time has come when a law needs to be place, which will regulate the manner in which universities are run," Sangma told the media here. He added that the students need to be made more aware of these laws.

Sangma wants his niece's case to be an example. "This case must be aggressively pursued without allowing the investigations to be dislocated, as this will enlighten the people," he said.

Talking about the welfare of the Northeast students, Sangma said that he had started a new scheme for the Meghalaya students living in New Delhi.

" What we want today is that the youth who are studying in different parts of the country, should go back with good memories so that they can be the ambassadors of this great nation for ensuring better integration of this country," he said.

Dana M Sangma committed suicide in her room last week at the Amity University in Gurgaon after she was allegedly caught using mobile phone during the examination and expelled from the hall. By Devesh Gupta (ANI)
