Uttar Pradesh: With the term of the Uttar Pradesh Shia and Sunni Waqf Board now over, the control of the two boards will rest with the state government for the time being. Utar Pradesh Minister for Minority Affairs assured that elections to the boards were only delayed due to the present lockdown. Minister Mohsin Raza said that the work of the two boards will be looked after by CEOs appointed by the government and elections will be held later due to the lockdown. The tenure of the Sunni Waqf Board was completed on March 31, and the term of the Shia Waqf Board was also completed on Tuesday. He said: "Both the boards were constituted during the previous Samajwadi Party regime and large-scale irregularities have been committed by both the boards while dealing with Waqf properties. Muttawalis (caretakers) of Waqf properties have been appointed without adhering to rules. The government has already recommended a CBI inquiry into this." IANS)
