Naqvi will start his sojourn from January 2-3 from Kerela where Christian population is in the high number. This group (Christian) is allegedly worst affected by Sangh Pariwar's anti-conversion rhetoric.

The Indian Express report says, to win the confidence of these groups which has been shaken recently, superstar Amitabh Bachchan has also been roped in. The superstar was personally called by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to do an advertisement. The ad reportedly will stress on the need to rise above religion and caste for inclusive development.

Reports say that top Ministers including Prime Minister is not at all happy with RSS and VHP's hardcore Hindutva philosophy which is jeopardizing good governance policy of the Government.

The Minority Minister Naqvi has been given task to make a template to win back the eroded confidence of minority groups. Naqvi will also meet State minority ministers within the course of time and discuss the various development issues which are plaguing the minority communities. Report says that before the Budget Session, the Minority Minister will cover 60-70 per cent states .

"It is true that there are misgivings among minority communities about this government. Their confidence has to be won. That will not happen sitting inside the office, it will only happen when you go to them in the field. That is why I have decided to go back to the field - not as a minister but as a political and social activist - to look at how schemes are being implemented on the ground," Naqvi told the daily.
