If any communication is received in this regard, the government will certainly share with the members of the house and also involve all parties, should any such situation arise in the future.”

Referring to the issues raised by the MIM member with regard to the re-constitution of the Telangana Wakf Board, Mr Rao said that all the issues will be considered by the state government.
