I am ready to go to jail, if proven guilty. Repudiating all allegations against him, Mazhar Ali Khan alias Bhukkal Nawab, MLC said at a heavily attended press conference in Lucknow today on 15th May.

He said that HC Verma had lodged an FIR against him, on the basis of forged papers of Weeding Register, which is Index. dated 4-3-2016. Similar happened in 2010 when SP government was not in power. Hon”ble Revenue Board had asked for old papers vide its letter dated 1374 (RRK) 2010 dated 31st Aug 2010. In his reply, RRK had replied that he had complied with his own handwriting. Now those papers are unreadable and in depleted conditions.

Replying to another allegations that he had constructed illegal 5 storied buildings on waqf land, Bukkal Nawab said that the land in question was purchased from their Daughter-in-law of reputed jewelers of Lucknow, Khun Khunji. Maps was sanctioned by relevant authorities for 3 floors, bur the builders had constructed 2 more floors. He has now requested LDA to charge him with compounding rates the relevant charges. There is no illegality in the construction of the 3 buildings.
