Minority fund misappropriated!

Union sports minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday alleged gross misutilization of the minority welfare fund in the state.
Addressing a meeting at the District Library in Guwahati, he said that the minority welfare fund has been failing to percolate benefit to the people for whom it was meant.
“This is because of gross misappropriation of the fund by the Assam government. I beg to appeal to the people to keep a close watch on the implementation of the minority welfare fund as the Centre has extended the base this time,” he said.
BJP minority cell leader Abdul Rashid Ansari was prominent among those who attended the meeting.
