The Congress Government donated 123 prime properties to the Delhi Waqf Board

New Delhi – Ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress-led-UPA Government gifted 123 prime properties in the capital to the Delhi Waqf Board. As reported by ‘Times Now’, the cabinet took this decision a few days before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. After the decision, a secret note was signed by Additional Secretary JP Prakash, which said, “Denotification of 123 properties in Delhi under the control of Land & Development Office (LNDO) & Delhi Development Authority (DDA) allowing the title to revert to the Delhi Waqf Board be communicated to the Ministry pending formal issuance of minutes”.

On 27th February 2014, the Delhi Waqf Board wrote to the Government of India claiming 123 prime properties in the capital. Interestingly, after receiving this proposal, the cabinet immediately approved it through a secret note. The properties were inherited by the Government of India from the British Government.

Editorial Viewpoints

  • The then Congress Government gave away the properties as if they were their own ! Those involved in taking such a decision should be severely punished.
  • Congress is a sycophant, who tries to appease the religious fanatics.
  • Will Congress, which has taken decisions against the public interest to appease the religious fanatics, ever achieve doing something in the public interest ?
  • Nationalists expect the BJP Government to seize the property.
