Special scheme for Muslim youth sought

By Our Staff Reporter

NALGONDA, JAN. 21. Moulana Sayyad Eshanuddin Khasim has urged the Government to introduce a special scheme for Muslim youth on the lines of Rajiv Yuva Shakti.

During Id-ul-Zuha address at Idgah Maidan here on Friday, he said: ``A minimum of 10 per cent posts should be reserved for Muslims in the public sector as well as private sector. Agricultural land should be distributed among poor Muslims.''
