New Delhi, 08th June, 2020:  Salient points of my address to UP BJP Minority Morcha workers through virtual conference today:

Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said here that while we are committed to “Honour” of all Indians, on the other hand some people are conspiring to create “Horror” in India.

While addressing Uttar Pradesh BJP Minority Morcha workers through a virtual conference, Shri Naqvi said that “Inclusive Empowerment” has been “Rashtraniti” and not “Rajniti” for the Government led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government has been working with commitment to happiness in eyes and prosperity in life of every needy. This has ensured that each and every section of the society including Minorities have become an equal partner of prosperity, dignity and empowerment. All sections of the society are moving forward on the path of inclusive empowerment without any discrimination.

Shri Naqvi said that some people and organisations in the country itself are engaged in obstructing this journey of inclusive growth, empowerment, dignity and harmony due to their narrow and prejudiced political self-interests. They are involved in a criminal conspiracy to disgrace India and Indians. We should not only be remain cautious of these nefarious elements but also expose and isolate them.

Shri Naqvi said that unable to digest the positive atmosphere and constructive mood of the country, the “Bogus Bashing Brigade” is trying to raise bogey of “Islamophobia”, intolerance, safety of Minorities etc just to defame India and disturb the fabric of communal harmony and unity of the country.

Shri Naqvi said that the BJP is not only the largest political party of the world, it is also an “Inclusive Family” which is working for prosperity of all with commitment to nationalism by removing the barriers of region and religion. While on one hand some political parties are confined to a particular family frame, on the other hand the BJP is “all-embracing family” which is moving forward with ethos of “Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas” and commitment to “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat”.

Shri Naqvi said that during the last 6 years, the Modi Government has worked with commitment to “Development without Discrimination” and “Development with Dignity” which has ensured that Minorities have also become an equal partner of mainstream development. All the poor and weaker sections including Minorities have been equally benefitted through Modi Government’s schemes such as PM Awas Yojana, Ujjwala Yojna, Ayushman Bharat, Kisan Samman Nidhi, Jan Dhan Yojana, Mudra Yojana, electrification drive, PM Sadak Yojana, One Nation-One Ration Card etc. Besides, the Minorities have significantly benefitted through various welfare measures taken by the Union Minority Affairs Ministry.

Shri Naqvi further said that more than 5 lakh master artisans, craftsmen and culinary experts and people associated with them have been provided employment and employment opportunities through “Hunar Haat” during last about 5 years. More than 10 lakh youths have been provided skill development training and employment and employment opportunities during last about 6 years through employment oriented skill development schemes such as “Ustad”, “Garib Nawaz Self Employment Scheme”, “Seekho aur Kamao”, “Nai Manzil” etc. More than 50 per cent beneficiaries are girls. Thousands of Health Care Assistants, who have been trained under skill development programme of Minority Affairs Ministry, are assisting in treatment and well-being of Corona patients.

More than 3 crore 80 lakh students from Minority communities have been provided various scholarships during the last 6 years. More than 50 per cent beneficiaries of scholarship schemes are girl students.

Shri Naqvi informed that for the first time since Independence, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi led Government is providing 100 per cent funding to develop schools, colleges, hospitals, community hall and other basic infrastructure on Waqf land under Pradhanmantri Jan Vikas Karykram (PMJVK) for weaker sections and needy especially girls in those backward areas which had been deprived of these basic facilities. During last about 6 years, Modi Government has developed socio-economic-educational and employment oriented infrastructure across the country in deprived Minority concentrated areas.
