Singh demanded that all students, regardless of the community they belong to should be given scholarships for education.
"Such schemes should not be on religious grounds alone," he said.
"We all remember the kind of language used by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his party and its leaders in the run-up to the election against minorities in the country. The sharp distinction between then and now is clearly visible to the people of the country. The BJP's hypocrisy on the issue stands exposed," Singh added.
On June 11, Union Ministry for Minority Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had said, "To ensure socio-economic-educational empowerment of minorities especially girls through '3Es- Education, Employment and Empowerment,' various scholarships including pre-matric, post-matric, merit-cum-means, etc will be provided to five crore students in next five years."
