Sonia sought census: P R Munshi

MALDA, Feb. 18. — The UPA government, facing criticism for reportedly undertaking a survey on Muslims in the Army, is working on a similar survey on religious minorities in sectors like education, health, telecom and power.

Disclosing this here today at a meeting, Union minister Mr Priya Ranjan Das Munshi said UPA chief Mrs Sonia Gandhi had asked for a list of the members of the minority communities employed in the education, telecom, health and power sectors in the states and at the Centre for initiating more development activities for them. He said the Centre would soon introduce more development schemes for religious minorities, and SCs and STs.
