Affairs of Minority

February 06 2018

One must learn the art of flipping over that silence upon ledge with the colours of ambitions from Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. When the Modi government took over the Delhi sultanate, he was offered a mere state-ministership. This buzzed a lot of fuzz into media, but Naqvi dared not to spill a bean over it. Time flew in its natural course, and, alas! Naqvi stepped up as a full-time union minister. As he became Minister of Minority Affairs, thus were visible his imprints on the ministry. In a bid to give a new face to the Minority Affairs and undo some of the most unpleasant decisions from past, vis-à-vis Haj subsidy, et al, Naqvi on-boarded many big names from the Opposition clan. From madrasa reforms to taking the minority youth to new high of intelligence, not only did various schemes of the Ministry come up, but also major steps were taken to provide qualitative education to Muslim girls. Perhaps that is the reason why in comparison to last year’s Budget, the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley provided an additional amount of around Rs 550 crore to the Naqvi Ministry in this Budget, and thus the allocation of the ministry increased to Rs 4700 crore in 2018-1.
