Kottayam: Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said the Centre had allocated a major chunk of money for promoting literacy and skill development among the minority community.

The government was committed to providing affordable and quality education tostudents, he said while addressing a function at Kozhikode.

The government would start ‘Tahreek e Taleem’ campaign,’ for the benefit of minorities. Educational institutions of minority communities had been brought into the mainstream education system over the last six months.

In a bid to encourage girls from minority communities to go for higher studies, the Centre had a plan to give Rs 51,000 as gift during the marriage of girls who completed graduation.
