Mamata will make better PM for secular India: Syed Bukhari

Mamata will make better PM for secular India: Syed Bukhari
Rubbishing rumours about a covert pact between the BJP and the Trinamool Congress, as alleged by the Congress and Left parties, Bhukari hoped that Banerjee would not go for a post-poll alliance with the BJP.

‘After going through the details of the developmental work that she has done for the development of minorities and Muslims in the state, I personally feel India needs a secular leader like her who beleives in work and not lip service,’ Bhukari said over phone.

‘Given her secular credentials, I personally feel that Mamata Banerjee would make a better Prime Minister than others who are in the prime ministerial race in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls,’Bhukari said.

Bhukari had written letters to all chief ministers, except those of BJP-ruled states, inquiring about the implementation of recomendations of the Sachar Commission and what practical measures the state governments had taken for the welfare of the Muslim population in their respective states.’I had written to all chief ministers, except those in BJP-ruled states. But no one of them has bothered to reply to my letter. Only Mamata Banerjee did with a detailed report of the steps the Bengal government has taken for the development of Muslims,’Bhukari said.

Bhukari’s letter was dated January 30 and Mamata replied to it on February 19 detailing the work she had done for the minorities. Asked if he felt that Mamata would would go along with the NDA post poll, Bhukari said,’As far as I feel she is a secular leader and will not go with the BJP or the NDA. We hope so.’
