CM wants more reserved seats for minority groups in West Bengal

Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal declared that very soon, she will bring a bill for increasing the seats for the minority groups in West Bengal. For the betterment & development of the minority groups, the state government took this decision on Saturday.

Banerjee met Justice (retd.) Rajinder Sachar for the consultation about the facilities for the minority group. If the minority class will get some facility then it will be a great achievement for Trinomool Congress. Mamata also said that, “The previous government also tried to do this but they were in hurry. That’s why the whole idea was unsuccessful. It failed to receive the concern of the governor. We will give a fresh look to it & will present it in the assembly within next three months.” Banerjee also gave scholarships & loans to the West Bengal Minorities Development & Finance Corporation.

The erstwhile Left Front promised to issue a notification for the maximization of the seats. They promised to increase 10% seats for backward classes, raising the quota 17% in the state to benefit, among others, economically backward Muslims based on recommendations by the Ranganath Mishra Commission. Banerjee also informed that, “Still there are some legal complications. Since minorities & OBCs are two separate departments, consent of both is required to make the bill comprehensive.”

After meeting with Rajinder Sachar, she said that her government will endeavor to improve the condition of the Muslims & work for their welfare.
