In response to a Starred Question in the Rajya Sabha, the other day, the Minister of Minority Affairs, Najma Heptullah informed that out of 76 recommendations of the Sachar Report, Government of India had accepted 72 recommendations. She also said that these recommendations were at different stages of implementation.
According to a statement issued to KNS, the Minister further said that Government had taken 43 decisions in respect of the 72 recommendations. Heptullah has further clarified that the responsibility of implementation of the aforesaid decisions had been given to the concerned Ministries/Departments.
Prof. Soz has, however, expressed his apprehensions that while the previous Govt. had set up a cell within PMO to monitor the implementations of the Sachar Report and implementation of 15-point programme meant for amelioration of the minorities, the present Govt. had, reportedly, dispensed with that procedure and that was something very disturbing.
