“Pilgrims who avail this opportunity are very poor Muslim Minorities and the subsidy for this noble cause should continue so that the poor Muslims would avail this opportunity,” the Deputy CM said in his letter to Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.
He also demanded that the Centre increase the subsidy amount from Rs. 690 Crores to Rs. 1,000 Crores so that, more number of pilgrims could be covered. (INN)
