'Will include N-E history in Delhi school textbooks'

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced a magisterial inquiry, introduction of chapters on the North-East in school textbooks and formation of a panel of north-eastern people for suggesting ways to make Delhi free of racial hatred. 

He regretted joining the north-eastern students on the fifth day of their protest at Jantar Mantar and demanded action against those responsible for the death of Arunachal Pradesh student Nido Taniam.

He said the “independent” magisterial probe, the report of which is likely to come in three-four weeks, would help the government to get to the truth. 

“We didn’t order the inquiry under any pressure,” he said, pointing out that his government was quick in taking action. 

“If a policeman is found involved in it, action would be taken against him," Kejriwal added, arguing that those found guilty should be hanged.

“Kejriwal, you came four days late. Where was the Aam Aadmi Party?” asked Binalakshmi Nepram, a writer-activist. She said there was a pattern of violence against the north-eastern students in the national capital region. 

When he took the stage, the protesters, most of whom were students, chanted slogans like “Long live Nido!” and “Racism – down! down!”.
