With the assembly polls just five months away in Delhi, the city BJP has decided to come out with a development plan for the Muslim community.


The Muslims constitute around 12 per cent of the population in Delhi.

Accusing the Congress of treating Muslims as a “vote bank”, Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel said his party will soon come out with an action plan for ensuring welfare of the community. “Our aim is to break the stereotype of Muslims as propagated by the Congress,” he said.
