Will Talk to Sachar About Special Provisions: Mamata
Keeping an election pledge, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said the state government would talk to Justice Rajinder Sachar for making special provisions for minorities.

"The condition of Muslims in the state is bad. We will meet Justice (Rajinder) Sachar and discuss with him about the implementation of the recommendations made by him in his report. Our government will endeavour to improve the condition of Muslims and work for their welfare," she told a press conference hours after being sworn in as chief minister of West Bengal.

"If he (Sachar) agrees to come to West Bengal and give his suggestions, we will be very happy," she said.

The Sachar Committee appointed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh prepared a report on the social, economic and educational status of the Muslims in the country.
