Welcoming the Gujarat government’s decision to accord minority status to Jain community, Acharya Dr. Lokesh Muni on Saturday said that by approving the long term pending demand of the community, the government has done justice to the community.
“The announcement has given a reason of celebration to the community,” he added.
Known for re-establishing human value & communal integrity among people, Acharya Lokesh had played an important role in attaining the status for the community.
In regards to the issue, he held several rounds of meeting with state chief minister Anandiben Patel and Governor OP kohli in the past.
Gujarat Government on Sunday issued a government resolution (GR) giving minority status to the Jain community.
Transport Minister and BJP state unit chief Vijay Rupani made the announcement in Ahmedabad.
The matter had been put on hold for some time due to the Patidar reservation agitation.
