Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena has recommended the Union Home Ministry take disciplinary action against IAS officer and former Delhi Waqf Board CEO SM Ali for allowing “illegal” board resolutions, sources at the LG office Monday.

During his tenure as CEO of the board of directors, he is “accused” by the CBI of engaging in acts of “omission and commission”, including his failure to oppose “illegal” resolutions for the appointment of a chief executive officer (CEO) and several other contract personnel, they said.

The Lieutenant Governor (LG) has recommended disciplinary action under Rule 16 of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965, the sources said.

In the ongoing investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against the chairman of the Waqf Board, Amanatullah Khan, it was revealed that Ali carried out the “illegal” resolution passed by the board for the appointment of Mehboob Alam as CEO, and also formally handed over the charge against him as his successor, the sources claimed.

They said an advertisement for the position of CEO violated the Delhi Waqf Act and Rules. It also formed the basis for hiring other staff on a contract basis, the sources said.

They said that Ali was CEO of Delhi Waqf Board when the advertisement was published and the recruitment was done.

The board not only retroactively approved the “illegal” ad, but also approved Alam’s “illegal” appointment as CEO based on the ad, the sources said.
