‘Minority institutions to have new heads soon'

J.S. Ifthekhar

Rosaiah takes note of ego clash between Ahmedullah and Shabbir

Hyderabad: The stalemate over appointment of chairmen to the State Haj Committee and Wakf Board is going to end soon. Chief Minister K. Rosaiah is stated to have taken a serious note of the clash of ego involving Minorities Welfare Minister Ahmedullah Syed and his predecessor Mohd. Shabbir Ali; which is causing delay in the filling up of these posts.

Both minority leaders are insisting on their close aides getting elected, which has resulted in an impasse. The undue delay in appointing chairmen to these important minority institutions has drawn flak from different quarters, not to speak of the adverse effect on the functioning of these bodies.

Mr. Rosaiah is believed to have called for the relevant files to take a decision. He will discuss the matter with both Mr. Ahmedullah and Mr. Shabbir Ali and issue orders, it is said.

When contacted, Mr. Ahmedullah said the matter would be resolved very soon. “It got delayed because of Ramzan. I will be meeting the Chief Minister in a day or two to finalise names. Both the Wakf Board and Haj Committee would have new chairmen within a week,” the Minister assured.

The undue delay in appointment of chairmen to the Haj Committee and Wakf Board has seriously impacted the functioning of these institutions.

While the Wakf Board remains headless for the last eight months, the Haj Committee is without a chief ever since Hafiz Peer Shabbir Ahmed resigned to get nominated to the Legislative Council two years ago.

On the intervention of the High Court, the government nominated 16 members to the Haj Committee on August 16. But even after three weeks, the government is dragging its feet on a new chairman.

While former Minorities Welfare Minister wants the PCC secretary, Zafar Javeed, to be elected, Mr. Ahmedullah is plumping for a minority leader from his home district of Kadapa, it is said.
