AAP’s Amanatullah Khan’s alleged MCC violation: Delhi CEO writes to EC over distribution of cheques to Imams

Contending that no enhancement or financial grants can be made once the MCC has kicked in, the CEO Delhi in his letter acknowledges the violation committed by AAP leader Amanatullah Khan who is also the chairman of Delhi Waqf Board.

The Chief Electoral Officer of Delhi has written to the Election Commission seeking action against AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan for distributing salaries among Imams in New Delhi. The CEO has held the distribution of salaries among Imams as a violation of the Model Code of Conduct.

The Delhi CEO in its written letter to the Election Commission has reportedly asked for strict action to be taken against AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan. Khan was seen in the pictures handing out salary cheques to the Imams and their helpers. In its defense, the AAP has said that those cheques were scheduled to be distributed in January but due to the problems created by the government functionaries, the distribution got delayed.

Contending that no enhancement or financial grants can be made once the MCC has kicked in, the CEO Delhi in his letter acknowledges the violation committed by AAP leader Amanatullah Khan who is also the chairman of Delhi Waqf Board. The CEO also revealed that despite being aware of the violation of the MCC, the Delhi Waqf Board chairman Amanatullah Khan went ahead with the disbursement of honorarium to the Imams and Muezzins.

It is notable here that AAP had announced a significant salary hike for imams and mosque helpers in January. However, AAP leader Amanatullah Khan was seen distributing ‘salary cheques’ to Imams when the MCC was already in place.
