BANGALORE: Senior Congress leader and former Union railway minister C K Jaffer Sharief has urged the State government to order a judicial inquiry into the alleged misappropriation of the Wakf Board properties as mentioned in a report by the Karnataka State Minorities Development Commission.

Addressing media persons here on Tuesday, he alleged that the report “was politically motivated and not a detailed inquiry.”

“If the BJP government has sincere concern about the welfare of the minority communities, it should order an inquiry into all the ill affairs of the three institutions,” he said.

“There are prima facie evidences to prove that the intention behind presenting such report in a vague manner to the government was intended to tarnish the image of the opposition Congress and the leaders of the other parties” Sharief alleged.
