on Sunday said that the Centre was working hard to implement the
recommendations of Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee for
upliftment of minorities.

minorities in all fields," Mukherjee said at a function to
distribute clothes to the poor at Furfura Sharif in Hooghly

already done a lot for the common man and has given emphasis
on upliftment of minorities."

Union Minister of state for Tourism Sultan Ahmed said
efforts were on to improve road condition and other facilities
at Furfura Sharif and to include it in the tourist map of West
Bengal.

Chatterjee of Trinamool Congress said his party would do
everything to ensure proper implementation of the Sachar
Committee recommendations.

Local Trinammol leader Idris Ali, one of the organisers
of the function, demanded setting up of a hospital in the
area.
