On the occasion Andrabi addressing mediapersons said that Waqf will continue working on beautification of shrines and important religious places. “We will provide all necessary facilities to devotees who visit these places,” she said.

Elaborating, Dr Andrabi said, “in recent times we have started doing all the development works on our own. Our engineering wing is very active, and we are not dependent on other departments. Today’s project was also an important one and the need of the hour. Waqf will utilise all its resources to develop all shrines and ensure more development in coming months,” she said.
