One day seminar on “Issues and challenges on migration from eastern Nagaland in Bangalore: A review of the learning and growth perspective” was organised by Eastern Naga Students’ Union Bangaluru (ENSUB) for Eastern Nagas and people from Northeast on July 15 at Shishya Church Bangaluru.
Resource person Dr. Budhendra, consultant to Lookhande Hospital in the field of public health, Bangaluru, advised the delegates to know how to adjust and live in cities so as to avoid harassment and racial discrimination from people. 
Another resource person Vezokho Resu, president, North East Welfare Association Karnataka (NEWAK) also shared about his experiences on how NE-community has been racially discriminated in work places, colleges, public places and by landlord.
He further said that in order to minimize or reduce racial discrimination and sexual violence towards NE-people, the central government should address the issues strongly in parliament and come up with necessary action and plans. 
He said that North East MPs, ministry of DONER, and all the eight states political leaders should address the issue on priority. Resu also advised the union to have their helpline for members and also connect with Bangalore city police officers so as to tackle the issues in future. 
During the seminar, delegates were divided into five groups with Khangyang chang (advisor), Rilipong thonger (ex-president), Chinglang Konyak (president), Apong Yimchunger (assistant finance secretary) and Bechung Andenshu (member) as group leaders. Each member shared their views and experiences on issues and challenges they had come across in Bangaluru.
The programme started with welcome address by ENSUB president, Chinglang Konyak and invocation by ENSUB executive-chairman, Mukwang Konyak and benediction by Bechung Andenshu.
