Govt has achieved a lot in 25 months: Acharya

"BJP is committed for unity and religious harmony with upholding value in politics and working for a socialist form of society inspired by Gandhian ideologies," said home minister V S Acharya.

After inaugurating the state executive committee meet of BJP Minority Morcha here on Saturday, he said that BJP is not a communal party as labelled by rival parties. "The opposition parties appear to be frustrated over the government's success and are finding ways to defame the government. Our government has achieved more than all the previous Congress governments, within a short span of 25 months which they were not able to do in 40 years. We are patient enough to encounter any sort of provoking statements against our administration," he added.

He said Arivu Yojane for the betterment of minority communities is very helpful to them. It facilitates loans at 2% interest rate. The Suvarna Arogya Chaithanya Yojane under Yashaswini-2 programme offers schoolchildren with free health check-ups. A total of Rs 50 crore has been allocated for the purpose. The scheme is a collective attempt to reach out to the layman. The funds for Minorities Development Board have been increased to Rs 100 crore.

The government has taken measures to improve the educational status of girl children belonging to minority communities. The budget of two years substantiates the concern of government for minorities, he added.

BJP Minority Morcha state president N F Mosin Nizamuddhin said 33 representatives from across the state will take part in the meet. The government has released nearly Rs 250 crore for various beneficiary programmes towards minorities. He said the minority people should not be carried away with the false campaigns of the Congress.

Udupi MLA Raghupathy Bhat, Kaup MLA Lalaji Mendon, BJP district president Udaykumar Shetty, BJP Minority Morcha state coordinators Kennedy Shanthakumar, Abdul Hakeem and others were present.
