New Delhi: A delegation of 30 leaders from the Muslim community, led by Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, called on the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi today.

Interacting with the leaders, the Prime Minister said he neither believes in politics which seeks to divide people on communal lines, nor will he ever speak communal language. He said the politics of majority and minority had caused a lot of damage to the country. He said employment and development are the solution to all problems, and he is focused on delivering them.

The Prime Minister spoke of the initiatives in skill development taken by the Union Government, and the work done by him as Chief Minister of Gujarat in fields such as education of the girl child, and revival of the kite industry.
