Expatriates should take part in minority empowerment: E M Abdul Rahman

Kozhikkode: Popular Front of India chairman E M Abdul Rahman called upon the expatriates to take active role in empowering minority, backward communities in the country. He was speaking at a Pravasi Sangamam programme at Kozhikkode organized by state committee of Popular Front.
He praised all the present efforts done by them in this respect.
There are concerted efforts to push the minority communities from the main stream of the society through various means. Political parties, bureaucracy and media are hands in gloves with each other in this matter. Popular Front will not allow this kind of nefarious designs to work, he added.
Popular Front state president Karamana Ashraf Moulavi presided over the function. E Abubacker (Muslim society, hopes and challenges), K K Zubair (Happy family) and Jameela teacher (Family and empowerment) led various sessions during the programme. Popular Front state general secretary P Abdul Hameed gave valedictory message.
Pravasi Sangamam demanded the authorities to avoid fare hike of flights during festival seasons through a resolution it passed. This anti expatriate step can not be justified. The resolution also pointed out that most of the times the victims would be common people.
The meeting also expressed it gratitude in state government decision to launch a pension project for poor expatriates. It congratulated chief minister Oommen Chandy for this important decision.
