The Human Rights Project at the Azim Premji University, North East Solidarity Forum and the Alternative Law Forum invite you for a discussion on the rights of persons from the North East living in Bangalore.

The discussion is on December 30th (Friday) at the Alternative Law Forum, at 6 pm.

The discussion is in light of the recent judgment of a full bench of the Supreme Court of India in Karma Dorjee v Union of India (https://indiankanoon.org/doc/14709267/). The court has given many directions including the implementation of the Bezbaruah Committee Report on the “Concerns of the people of the North East living in other parts of the country”. The report and the Supreme Court decision have come about in the background of a slew of attacks on persons from the North East in Delhi.

The discussion will look at the implications of these developments in the context of Bangalore, a city that is still reeling from the exodus of people from the North East in 2012. The discussion will be lead by Dr. Rini Ralte, President of the North East Solidarity Forum and the members of the Human Rights Project at the Azim Premji University.
