BANGALORE, June 14 � A committee set up by the Union Home Ministry today arrived here to study the problems faced by the people from the North-East, reports PTI.
People belonging to the North-Eastern region residing in Bangalore and other cities of Karnataka attended a meeting and interacted with committee members, former MP and member of the committee HT Sangliana told reporters here.
Sangliana said during the interaction, job-related and security-related issues surfaced. �The participants raised concern over violation of minimum wage rules, negligence of the police to address their problems, among others,� he said.
Addressing the security-related problem, Sangliana said the committee will ask the Karnataka government to make arrangements at police station level to promptly tackle North-East-related cases because the police are unhelpful. �They are not registering cases promptly and protecting the accused despite their complaints against them in clear terms,� he said.
Sangliana said the committee will ask the government to establish a helpline and institute North-East-related cells at the police station level and at the police headquarters to curb cases going unnoticed and unheard.
