The Uttarakhand Waqf Board will soon demolish illegal structures on its properties across the hill-state, its new president Shadab Shams has said.
Shams was elected unopposed as president of 10-member board on September 7, 2022. Shams says Waqf properties worth Rs 1.5 lakh crore across Uttarakhand are illegally occupied.
Thousands of acres of Waqf land is illegally occupied in different parts of the state. We want to free our properties from the clutches of mafia to make them useful for people they are really meant for, Shams told the Press.
