UP govt to reach out minority community, aware them of schemes through 'Qaumi Chaupal': State Min Danish Ansari


Uttar Pradesh Minority Welfare Minister Danish Azad Ansari on Monday informed about organising an event called ‘Qaumi Chaupal’ in order to reach more and more poeple of minority communities across the state and aware them of the policies designed for them by the state government. 

Ansari said, “With the Qaumi Chaupal, the government is reaching out to the minorities and also extending the benefits of the important schemes introduced for them. The main motive behind initiating this outreach programme is to advertise the schemes rolled out for the minorities and also extend their benefits on the ground level.”

The minister said there are a number of schemes dedicated to the minority community which the later is uanware of. With the help of the programme, the state government is intended to propagate the work done by the Yogi Adityanath-led government.

“There are a lot of things that the government is doing for the minorities but they are unaware of them. We have started this chaupal for this purpose. We will organise the Chaupal for three days in various districts from Thursday to Saturday. I organised the first event in Ballia where I went to various localities of the minority communities and interacted with them. The response of the people was good,” he said.

Elaborating on the government’s roadmap for the welfare of the minority communities in the state, the Minister said that the government has set up a 100-day agenda for the purpose of bringing about changes in the condition of minorities in the state.

“The government has set a 100-day agenda under which a mobile app is being launched to modernise the syllabus in the Madrasas. The government is also giving grants to the marriages of the daughters of the minority communities. The scholarship scheme is being modernised further. Work is also being done for the infrastructure development of the minority communities. Employment fairs will be organised in Muslim-dominated regions. Chapters of the freedom fighters would also be taught in Madrasas,” Ansari said.

Speaking about the much-talked-about Uniform Civil Code in the state, the Minister said that the government would hold interactions with the people from the minority communities and every section of the society before taking any decision on the implementation of the legislation.

“Whatever decision the government takes, would be for the common man. There are some laws that are the need of the hour and should be brought in. But whatever the laws would be made, will have the opinion and participation of the people,” he said.

“We will reach out to the minority communities and every section of the society if the state government takes the decision to bring in the Uniform Civil Code,” the Minister stated.

Asked about the Opposition’s allegations of the BJP being an anti-Muslim party, Ansari said that people from the minority community feel safe in the state.

“I am holding meetings with the people of the Muslim community. I don’t think that they have a sense of fear or insecurity. They feel safe in the state,” he added.
