"We`ll be going to Delhi along with a team of lawmakers led by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki soon to press for enactment of an anti-racial law, installing his statue in the national capital as a symbol of anti-racism and initiating all possible measures to prevent recurrence of such incident in any part of the country," they said.
