India / State minorities development minister: ‘Give minorities priority in government jobs’

State minorities development minister Naseem Khan on Monday asked officials to give priority to people from the minority communities for government and semi-government jobs.

Observing that the representation of the minorities in such jobs continued to be low, Khan said that instructions to give jobs to minorities on priority had been issued to the state administration.

He said that ‘better representation to minorities in government and semi government jobs’ was part of a 15-point programme spelt out by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

All states have been asked to implement this programme.
