Muslim Service Organization will field candidates on 15 seats in Uttarakhand

Dehradun, Jan 25 (PTI) The Muslim Seva Sangathan (MSS) on Tuesday said it will field its candidates in 15 seats where the minority population is high in the Uttarakhand Assembly elections to be held on February 14.

Making an announcement to this effect at a press conference here, MSS President Naeem Qureshi said that the decision has been taken in view of the disappointment faced by the minorities from the parties ruling the state so far.

Describing BJP and Congress as two sides of the same coin, Qureshi said that both did nothing for the betterment of minorities.

He said that MSS would field its candidates in 15 seats, including Vikasnagar, Sahaspur, Dharampur, Dehradun Cantt, Haridwar and Ramnagar, which are dominated by minorities.

On this occasion, MSS released its manifesto asking the public to open Islamic Culture Centers in Dehradun and Haridwar, make Urdu language education compulsory up to class VII, recruit Urdu teachers, fully implement the recommendations of the Sachar Committee and IITs and IITs. He also made promises like arranging 10 percent reservation for Muslim students in polytechnic institutions.
