New Delhi, Feb 12 (UNI) The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) today resolved to wipe out communal forces from the country.
In a resolution passed at a seminar on minority issues, held at the DPCC office, the BJP was criticised for its "anti-Muslims" policies.
Held on the initiative of DPCC Chief J P Agarwal, the seminar, organised by the Delhi State Haj Committee and the Indian Muslim Youth Forum, discussed various problems faced by the Muslim community and the role of the community in the current political situation.
Speaking at the seminar, where prominent leaders of the Delhi congress like AICC general secretary Parvez Hashmi, Delhi Urban Development Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan, Transport Minister Haroon Yousyf MLA Matin Ahmed and former MCD Councillor Jitender Kochar participated, Mr Agarwal said the Congress had always been serious regarding the problems faced by the Muslims. Infact, the Congress was the only party which had given priority to problems of the minority community.
Discussions at the seminar included granting Muslims greater representation in the coming Assembly polls in the state, implementing recommendations of the Sachchar committee report, appointing people of the community on various government posts, opening technical institutes to encourage education for Muslim women, removing the shortage of Urdu teachers in Delhi schools and providing latest health facilities in Muslim-majority areas.
