Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said, the government is focusing on providing quality education to minority students as their empowerment is not possible without it.
Addressing the annual Conference of National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (NMDFC) in New Delhi today, Mr. Naqvi said the NDA government is working to ensure that no minority student is deprived of good education due to lack of money.

Mr. Naqvi said the NMDFC gives education loans to minority students at an interest rate of three percent and artisans are being given loan at an interest rate of five percent to establish their businesses.
