AGARTALA / NEW DELHI, Sep 15 (TIWN): Discrimination against Northeast indigenous is again in a controversial storm after Tripura CPI-M indigenous wing Gana Mukti Parishad (GMP) President, former MP Jitendra Choudhury alleged racist attitude by Doctors in Delhi towards him.

In a social media post, Choudhury alleged, "Dr Lal Pathslab at Canaught Place in New Delhi refused to receive my blood sample, simply because the seal of the Physician on the prescription was not distinct. Even my ID and CGHS Card etc. failed to convince them that I am a bonafide citizen of this country. From there, while I went to Parliament Annexe, to put on the seal again, I had to face another amount of humiliation. One Dr. Taneja has misbehaved with me like anything, the reason why I approached him for further putting the seal. Only when I was compelled to show him my colour then only he stopped. This is very unfortunate, even after seven & half decades of our independence the people of North East are treated indiscriminately like this, very particularly in North India, becoz of their face and complexion".

The former MP also shared double-sealed presciption, attached below :
