REF :  THE RESERVED   SEATS FOR THE ANGLO INDIAN  COMMUNITY IN THE LOK SABHA AND   STATE  LEGISLATIVE  ASSEMBLIES.

 

 

Honourable Sir,

 

We are the members of the Anglo-Indian Community appeal to you on the above subject for your sympathetic consideration to continue with our reservation of seats in Parliament and the State Legislative Assemblies for another ten years, strongly justifying the need for the continued representation.

 

"The Anglo-Indian Community has played a part out of all proportion to its size for the development and progress of India. The Community has been a pioneer in many technical professions, railways, forestry, education, public health, nursing, sports, and the fighting forces. The entire country admires their zest, their spirit of adventure and patriotism. English is their mother tongue; it helps in the communication with other countries with understanding world events, trends, and personalities".

 

Today, there are estimated to be over 4,50,000 Anglo-Indians living in India, most of whom are based in the Cities and Urban areas of Delhi, Goa, Puducherry, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala. North East States  and specifically in cities  of :

DelhiKolkataChennaiBangaloreHyderabad,  Mumbai,  KochiGoaPune,

SecunderabadVisakhapatnamLucknow,  Agra, and in some Urban areas & towns of BiharJharkhandWest Bengal and Orissa .

 

The Members of the Anglo-Indian Community are not geographically concentrated in anyone place or area - they are spread out through the length and breadth of most states, in Urban Areas - especially in Railway towns, industrial belts, in educational institutions, in Hospitals and some of them, living in rural areas, like Supaul and Saharsa are involved in Farming and agriculture - and Since the community is so microscopic, it may not be always readily visible in large numbers.

 

Your government represents the poor, the needy and the down trodden of the country   as also those of the Minorities, irrespective of caste, creed, culture or religion. “ Sab Ka Sath Sab Ka Vikas”  is what the Government is rightly propagating.

 

Respected Sir, we request that steps be initiated to reconsider your decision. It is only right and befitting that this minority community’s interests are safeguarded so that the Anglo-Indians may also grow and develop together within our country India as a whole.

 

It is because of their very minority status that provision for their representation in the state Legislatures was provided for in the Constitution of India under Article 333 and 331 refers.

 

The contribution of Anglo-Indians to our national life is far beyond their numbers.  They have made pioneering contribution in the field of education and sports and laid the foundation for excellence in the railways, posts and telegraph Aviation, Forestry, Education, Armed Forces, Civil Service and many other government departments.  Their contribution in the fields of art and literature is equally phenomenal.   Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that despite its small headcount, the Anglo-Indian community has played a vital role in nation building.

 

The Anglo-Indian Community made its  singular contribution  to the Nation by sustained presence in the field of education. At the time of Independence,  it was through nearly 300 Anglo-Indian Schools that the Nation’s middle classes  were provided  access to quality education.  Even today, the Anglo-Indians still continue to be  present  in every sphere of National Life despite their microscopic numbers.

 

Since all Anglo-Indians are Christians, (Roman Catholics and Protestants) their existence and presence in the above mentioned areas can be verified from the parish Churches or Christian centers located in the above areas.

If the representation in Lok Sabha is over looked or brushed aside the community will not be adequately represented in the state Legislative Assembly according to the article 333 of the constitution of India.   We have a good number of members of our community in Bihar and they need help and representation.

 

We earnestly petition you to take immediate steps to reconsider and take appropriate and corrective steps to have a member of the Anglo-Indian Community nominated to the Lok Sabha and State Assembly   under the provisions of Article :333 of the constitution of India.  This will give much needed political strength to India’s smallest ethnic minority and re-in force the country’s commitment to its secular ideals.  Side by side, this move will preserve the country’s commitment to the Anglo-Indian Community despite its depleting numbers.

 

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
