Discriminating against cab drivers of the Hindu community in Hyderabad, Telangana Minorities Finance Corporation has decided to implement ‘driver empowerment programme’ in association with Uber to provide new cars to eligible drivers belonging to minority sections of the society.
The corporation will also provide financial assistance to each driver, who is trained under the programme, to buy a new car so as to run it as a taxi by placing it with the Uber Cab services.
Clearly, it is surprising why we in India give unprecedented and unmatched preferential treatment to the minorities.
In the past Congress-led governments had kept on pursuing sectarian agenda. For instance, Congress-led UPA government constituted various committees for minorities including Sachar Committee that recommended loans, financial incentives, benefits, concessions and special schemes only for non-Hindus; and has excluded crores of Hindus from the said benefits.
