Wakf Minister taken to task

No money was sanctioned to Wakf institutions in seven districts in the State - including Mysore and Udupi - last year, while other districts were sanctioned a disproportionately high amount, they charged.

Rs 2.35 cr sanctioned

Khan, in his reply to former Wakf minister and Congress MLC A M Hintusgeri, stated that a total of Rs 2.35 crore was sanctioned in 2008-09, of which only Rs 1.23 crore was released by the Wakf board.
