LG has stopped formation of Wakf Board: Sisodia
New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia here on Wednesday questioned the decision of Lt Governor Anil Baijal to stop the formation of the state Wakf Board.
“Why Delhi’s LGs, current and former, want to run Wakf Board themselves or through officers?
“Is it because there is lot of corruption in rent of Wakf Board properties?” he asked.
Sisodia said that there were gangs who’ve encroached on Wakf Board land and they don’t want an elected goverment to run the board.
He also said that the High Court had asked Baijal to put on hold the appointment of only the seventh member of the board, but Baijal stopped formation of the board instead.
