Adopted at the 20th Congress of the CPI(M), Kozhikode, April 4-9, 2012
For Implementation of the Ranganath Mishra Commission Report
The 20th Congress of the CPI(M) protests against the deliberate delay on the part of the Central Government to initiate steps for the implementation of the Ranganath Mishra Commission report. While there are several positive recommendations for the advance of the status of minorities, this Party Congress draws attention specifically to two of the recommendations.
The first is for reservation of jobs for Muslims on grounds of the social and economic backwardness of the vast majority of the community. It has recommended 10% of reservation in jobs and education for backward sections of the Muslim minority and 5% for other minorities.
