Lucknow, July 9 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh State Advisory Council chairman Satish Chandra Mishra and cabinet minister Nasimuddin Siddiqui today again met the representatives of different Muslim organisations, including Shia cleric Kalbe Jawad, to discuss in detail various issues raised by them.

Mr Mishra, while listening to the problems of Muslim Samaj representatives at Annexe here, said the Mayawati government was fully-committed towards the development of the minorities and every possible step would be taken for the education, economic and social development of the community.

''It was on her directives that meets with different organisations of the Muslim community are being held for finding of solutions,'' he added.

Therefore, a special cell is being constituted in the State Advisory Council for quick disposal of the problems of the Muslim community, under which different issues pertaining to the development of the community would be discussed and its time bound disposal would be ensured, Mr Mishra said.

Cabinet Minister Nasimuddin Siddiqui also assured the Muslim brethren that their interests would not be overlooked under present Ms Mayawati's regime.

All India Muslim Personal Law Board member Kalbe Jawad, Muslim Personal Law Board member Hamidul Hassan, All India Shia Personal Law Board Mirza Mohammad Athar, Kalbe Husain, former union minister Dr Akhilesh Das, former MLC Siraj Mehdi and media advisor to CM Jameel Akhtar attended the meeting.

Mr Jawad had yesterday met Ms Mayawati and expressed his reservation on the deal.

''I oppose the Nuclear-deal as it is 'anti-muslim' and has some 'shady' intentions attached to it,'' the cleric had told mediapersons. The deal was being done on the terms and conditions of United States and it was entirely against the interests of India, he had added.

The issue had gained political propositions after Ms Mayawati met several Muslim clerics and denounced the deal, dubbing it ''anti-Muslim''.
