“NE8 start ups” for budding entrepreneurs of Northeast India

The unveiling of ‘Start-up India’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has bought lots of positivity among start up entrepreneurs across India.

Youth of the Northeast region recently came up with an exclusive start-up accelerator platform, ‘NE8 start ups’, to encourage start-ups, first-generation entrepreneurs and also to uplift the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the region.
Recently, a seminar was that brought young entrepreneurs from across India, including the Northeast region.

He also said that Rahul Gandhi’s upcoming visit to Una will boost the morale of Dalits.

“Whether it is Hyderabad, or the places where farmers were committing suicide recently. At drought hit areas also he carried out marches. And now if he is going to Una then it is appreciable as it will boost up the morale of the Dalits,” Punia said.

Some people claiming themselves to be “gau rakshaks” (cow protectors) thrashed four Dalit youths in Una town in Gir-Somnath district last week, alleging them of killing a cow which they were skinning. The victims said that they were skinning the cow which was already dead.

Video of the incident went viral, sparking protests. A head constable was killed yesterday after a mob attacked police in Amreli town, while some Dalit youths tried to commit suicide protesting the incident. Dalit rights organisations called for a state-wide shutdown in Gujarat in protest over the incident.
