New Delhi, June 21 (ANI): Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khursheed has said that the government will prefer a smooth process for reservation of jobs for minorities in the private sector instead of pushing it down to anybody’s throat.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, Khursheed said the government is proceeding with as much urgency as it can on the issue.

Asked about the time frame in which minority reservation in private sector can become a reality, he said that a dead line is not possible in this case.

Khursheed, who is also Minister for Corporate Affairs, said the industry had a positive attitude on the issue and are not opposed to reservation.

He also said that if industries demand incentives at a later stage for implementing minority reservation, the government is open to discussions. (ANI)
