City forges musical bond with N-E people

The City police in association with the North-East Welfare Association of Karnataka, had organised a music concert on Sunday with the objective of promoting peace and harmony between the north-easterners and local people. Renowned singers Lucky Ali and Joy Barua performed at the event.

There was jeering, dancing and fun for the student community as well as the working lot of northeastern people who have made Bangalore their home.

“This is a great opportunity and we want to use this platform to promote harmony with the North-eastern community in Bangalore and the State,” said Lalrinpuii, President, Bangalore Mizo Students’ Union.

It took a negative event like the exodus to highlight the presence of the northeasterners in Bangalore, he said. The northeastern people had fled the City in the wake of rumours of impending attacks on them, recently.

“The Karnataka government and the police have done their best to mitigate the problem”, said Lalrokhoma Pachau, Director General and Inspector General of Police, Karnataka. He was one of the chief guests at the concert.

 “The police were negligent at first during the exodus. However, when the issue became serious, they too became serious”, said Vezokho, president, Naga Students Union Bangalore.  City Police Commissioner Jyothiprakash Mirji said northeasterns facing any problem should approach the police at once.
