Agatha Sangma Asks Delhi Police To Show Sensitivity Towards NE People

Agatha SangmaNew Delhi, Apr 2 : Union Minister Agatha Sangma today asked the Delhi Police to show "sensitivity and respect" in dealing with people in the wake of reports that sleuths are questioning any person with "Tibetan features" as part of their efforts to prevent protests during Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit.

Sangma, who represents Meghalaya's Tura constituency, also said people have every right to protest peacefully and it was "sad" that the people from the Northeast face problems from the Delhi Police.

"Sensitivity should be there when dealing with people. I wouldn't say that it should be only because people are from Northeast and people are from Tibet," the Minister of State for Rural Development, who belongs to Nationalist Congress Party, told reporters outside Parliament House.

"If people are protesting peacefully, they have every right to do so. I think it is very important that the Delhi Police should treat them with little more respect... and little more calmer approach," she said reacting to reports that Northeast people were harassed in markets, residential areas and streets and some of them taken for questioning.

"It is a sad thing that some of the people from the Northeast face problems," Sangma said.
