New Delhi: Expressing shock over the recent thrashing of a 21-year-old Assamese student, writer-activist Binalakshmi Nepram on Monday criticized the BJP-led NDA Government for failing to protect the citizens of this country.
"The government has failed to protect the citizens of this country, whether in Delhi of the north-east people or other citizens in the north east of India, the Government has to take a very serious decision before much more violence happens like this," Binalakshmi Nepram told ANI here.
Nepram urged people to not take the law into their hands and resolve things peacefully.
"Those who are trying to commit such violence, we urge them not to do it. If north east people make a mistake, then take it to the authorities, don't take the law in your hands. Beating up someone, lynching someone is not the way to resolve things peacefully in our country," she added.
A 21-year-old Assamese student was allegedly beaten up by locals in South Delhi's Amar Colony when he was trying to break the lock of someone else's house, mistaking it to be his own, apparently in an inebriated state.
Police have registered a case on his statement and further investigations are on. The CCTV footage of the area is being checked to verify claims of both the parties.
