Bangalore, Jan 1 (UNI) Karnataka Minister for Wakf Zameer Khan has decided to resign for the post alleging that Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy is neglecting people belonging to minority community.
Mr Khan was expected to submit his papers tomorrow.
Talking to newsmen here after offering prayer on the occasion of Bakrid, he alleged that the Chief Minister, despite inviting a week back, failed to visit Mosque and greet the people on the occasion of Bakrid.
Mr Khan said that the Chief Minister also did not attend Church during Christmas. This shows that he (Mr Kumaraswamy) was not interested in people belonging to minority community.
Mr Kumaraswamy, when his attention was drawn to Mr Khan's decision to quit the Cabinet, said that he would meet him (Mr Khan) and convince. "The coalition government was not against people belonging to minority community, it has great respect, and the budget allocation this year was increased four times for their welfare", he added.
However, Mr Khan said that "there would be no going back on his decision to quit and would submit his resignation paper tomorrow." UNI
