Efforts on to simplify minority schemes implementation: Naqvi
Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday said efforts were on to simplify the implementation process of various minority- related schemes announced by the previous UPA government.
Naqvi also said that he has asked all state governments to ensure full and judicious use of central minority funds.
The Union Minister said that there were various schemes for minorities in place but their implementation process was complex. “Our ministry will make it easier,” he told PTI.
He alleged that the previous UPA government did not implement most of the minority-related schemes and they remained only on paper.
“After forming government under the leadership of Narendra Modi, implementation of these minority-related schemes have been made a top priority as empowerment of minority class is not possible without them,” he said.
“Our ministry aims to connect labourers belonging to the minority sections to the bigger market network. Skill development, education, easy loan availability will play key factors in making this strategy a success,” he said.
