Padho Pardesh was introduced by BJP's Minority Ministry to provide subsidy to minority students who undertake overseas education. However, a detailed analysis tells us that the real minority groups who face an existential crisis and those who are heavily outnumbered by other minority groups have been grossly under-represented in this scheme. Shockingly, the chunk of the benefits in all 3 years went to minority groups from Non BJP ruled states, especially states like Kerala where the ruling party hates anything even remotely Hindu. North Eastern States were ignored as always.
