Sachar committee report will be implemented : A.R. Antulay

via HK published on December 28, 2006

NEW DELHI: The Centre today said the recommendations and observations of the Sachar Committee on Muslims will be implemented fully next year.


 


Minorities Affairs Minister A R Antulay’s remarks came a day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s assertion that the government was committed to the uplift of minorities.


 


“We will not only implement the recommendations of the Sachar committee but also its observations,” Antulay told reporters after addressing an international conference of Dalits and Muslims here.


 


“They will be implemented in toto in 2007,” he said when asked about a specific time-frame for their implementation.


 


He also spoke about plans to carry out amendments in the Wakf Act to give more powers to the Central Wakf Council. Such an amendment, aimed at clearing Wakf properties worth thousands of crores from trespassers, is expected to be brought about in the budget session.
