Akhilesh Government in their budget for 2016-17 came up with some great schemes for the minority welfare. These included free education for the young and covered pilgrimages for the aged; showing that the UPCM has thought of each and every sector of the society. The amount was sanctioned to ensure that work is started and completed on time, without any delay. A total of 157 crore was budgeted by Akhilesh Yadav for these initiatives. A lot of these reforms can be seen and the latest one which got people talking is the Aala Hazrat Hajj House. The first two phases worth almost Rs. 40 crore have been completed.
On August 4th, 2016 UPCM Akhilesh Yadav will travel to Ghaziabad to inaugurate the Hajj House and spend some time with the pilgrimages. It is built on the Hindon river bank and overlooks the beautification process going on. Not just this, the young CM will also provide passport and tickets to the pilgrims and flagged off by him. The four-acre land will provide them with a place to rest in between their journey.
All the pilgrims are generally given a metal hand band to avoid mix-ups, but this often ended up hurting or bruising the aged. Akhilesh Yadav directed the officials to replace them with fibre bands, to serve the utility and to keep the people safe. The UPCM has played an important role in maintaining the communal harmony of the state and can be credited with the fact that the state capital, has often shown incidents of brotherly love between different sects.
Aala Hazrat Hajj House will house 9,500 Muslims from 21 districts for the first trip and all the facilities needed will be provided there. These will cover immigration processes, currency exchange, medical inspections, etc. There will be three shifts of 50 cleaners each to maintain the cleanliness of the place along with mobile toilets, a transformer for high mast lights apart from other utilities. There will be 24 hours of water and electricity along with around the clock security.
Social Samajwadi would like to appreciate Akhilesh Yadav’s efforts for minority welfare.
