Tiruchirapalli, Apr 5 (UNI) Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) Tamil Nadu unit, while lauding the State Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's announcement that the government will remove obstacles before implementing 3.5 per cent exclusive reservation for minorities, today urged him to set up a special monitory cell to keep a vigil on the implementation of the same.

Talking to newspersons party, State president M Khader Mohideen MP said a resolution to this effect was adopted in a party meeting here.

Professor Mohideen said the meeting decided to set-up a five-member Ulemas Committee to improve the Ulemas' standard of living and other issues pertaining to the Muslim minorities. The party would take up suitable measures after receiving a report from the Committee, he added.

He said the meeting lauded the Union Government's move to establish the Central Madrasa Educational Board.

The resolution also urged the Centre to expedite implementation of the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project (SSCP).

Referring to the Hogenakkal drinking water supply project, Professor Mohideen urged the Karnataka Government to look into the scheme on humanitarian grounds and not to politicise the issue.

He also urged the Centre to ensure that the project was implemented as scheduled.

The IUML leader said 60th anniversary of the party's state unit would be held at Chennai on June 14. The party National president Banatwala and Mr Karunanidhi, among others were expected to attend the Conference, he added.
