Modi govt likely to ‘scrap’ minority affairs ministry
All schemes being implemented by the ministry will continue after the merger
The Centre is likely to scrap the Ministry of Minority Affairs — established by the UPA government in 2006 — and merge it with the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, sources in the government told DH.
All schemes being implemented by the ministry will continue after the merger, they said. Ministry officials refused to comment.
“The BJP-led NDA government is of the view that there is no need for an independent ministry for minority affairs. It believes the ministry was created as part of UPA’s appeasement policy. Now, the Modi government wants to bring it back under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment as the ‘Department of Minority Affairs’,” one source said.
