Khan, the AAP MLA from Okhla, said in the letter that apprehensions were expressed on social media that some of the mosques were ”facing demolition” due to the project.
”Zabta Ganj mosque at Mansingh Road, the mosque at Vice President residence and the mosque at Krishi Bhawan may face damage due to the Central Vista project. I will discuss the issue with PMO and Hardeep S Puri (Union Housing and Urban Affairs minister). No damage to these mosques will be tolerated,” he tweeted in Hindi.
सेंट्रल विस्टा प्रोजेक्ट की वजह से कई पुरानी मस्जिदों को संभावित नुक्सान की ख़बर मिली थी,
इस मामले में मैंने आज प्रधानमंत्री @narendramodi जी को चिट्टी लिखकर मस्जिदों को नुक़सान न पहुँचाने की माँग की और दस दिनों के अंदर इस मुद्दे पर सरकार का स्पष्टीकरण माँगा। pic.twitter.com/NgbyXciX8B

Khan said he earnestly expected that the central government would extend assurance that no Waqf property will be demolished or its nature will be changed due to the Central Vista project, within 10 days of receipt of his letter to avoid any litigation.
