IN WAKE OF ELECTION, STATE TRIES TO WOO MINORITIY COMMUNITIES WITH SEVERAL SCHEMES

ashok-chowan1The recent state cabinet’s meet, which was held under the leadership of Chief Minister Ashok Chavan saw schemes of around Rs 110 Crore being approved. No points for guessing that this has been done as a part of wooing voters for the approaching Lok Sabha elections year. The state cabinet meet held under the leadership of Chief Minister Ashok Chavan highlighted the issues of the minorities including the Belgaon issue. And post the meet, the state declared all-new schemes for the minority communities in Maharashtra for which the state announced a budget of Rs 110 Crore. Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said that their area of focus through the schemes was educational development for minority students. And for tackling the issue of falling attendance registered in government schools, the state has decided to pay Rs 2 for every day of attendance to each student. Decisions were also taken to provide technical and professional training to students. Beyond any doubt, the Maharashtra State has again played its minority card – something that the Congress always does close to elections each time but fails to implement later.
