Ankita Konwar takes to her social media accounts to share her thoughts over people’s hypocrisy. She slams ‘hypocrites’ who celebrate a northeasterner’s victory only when they represent Indians and win medals but otherwise subject them to racism and mental harassment.

Konwar who hails from Assam has also called out people discriminating against North-East Indians. She writes, “If you’re from Northeast India, you can become an Indian ONLY when you win a medal for the country. Otherwise, we are known as ‘’Chinky’ ‘Chinese’ ‘Nepali’ or a new addition ‘corona,’”
“India is not just infested with casteism but racism too. Speaking from my experience. #Hypocrites,” she adds.

Ankita’s comments come right after India registered victory and won a silver medal at Tokyo Olympics 2020 in weightlifting.
