BANGALORE, FEB. 21. The Minister for Animal Husbandry and Wakf, Mirajuddin Patel, today said that the Wakf Board has no problems with Hotel Windsor Sheraton & Towers continuing its tenancy on the Wakf property on which it is situated provided it pays rent at the market rate, which is about Rs. 35 lakhs a month.
He told presspersons here today that the matter is in court and the hotel group has been asked to deposit Rs. 6 lakhs as rent. The hotel has deposited the rent for January and February. He said the lease agreement between the hotel and the Wakf Board is not according to the rules and the latter had agreed to charge a monthly rent of Rs. 6,000 some years ago. "We need market rent as we can use the money for various developmental activities of the Wakf Board."
Mr. Patel mentioned that the Government has released Rs. 1.05 crore for providing fodder in 21 drought-prone districts of the State.
With nearly 7.9 lakh litres of surplus milk with the Karnataka Milk Federation, he said there is a proposal to provide milk to schoolchildren and in anganwadis, free of charge. The modalities are being worked out.
