The delegation accompanied by Minister of State for Minority Affairs Ninong Ering submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister in this regard.
Speaking to reporters after meeting Kejriwal, activist Binalakshmi Nepram said the Chief Minister had assured them of taking up the issue with Lieutenant Governor and press for immediate police action in the case.
"Kejriwal has also assured us that that he too will join us in the protest," said Nepram.
"More than 60 percent of young people who come out of northeast to study or work are living in Delhi. We are treated like second class citizens here. This issue is not just concerned with Delhi government but also the Centre. We demand that an anti-racial discrimination law be enacted," she said.
The delegation also demanded formation of a committee under Delhi government to look into all cases of racial discrimination not just for the people from the northeast but also people coming from all parts of the country.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi joined the protesters at Jantar Mantar on Monday evening to express his solidarity with them.
