‘Sachar report appeasing minorities’

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: Speakers at a seminar on the Sachar Committee report, organised by the Hindu Aikya Vedi here, have alleged that the report is aimed at appeasing minorities.

Any reform based on the report will harm the secular character of the country, S. Gurumoorthy, columnist, said. It is part of vote bank politics, he said.

The former Bharatiya Janata Party president P.S. Sreedharan Pillai alleged that the Paloli committee, which was set up to recommend measures based on the report, did not conduct a detailed study.

M. Radhakrishnan, State Secretary of the Hindu Aikya Vedi; Kaleeswaram Raj, lawyer; and others spoke.
