Asiya representing aimless fringe: Sajad

Rising Kashmir News

Srinagar, Oct 12:

 The Child Development Project Officer (CDPO) of Anantnag's Breng block has been suspended after a banner on 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign featured separatist leader Asiya Andrabi among the women achievers of the world.
The banner aimed at highlighting the women achievers was hoisted at a function held to promote education for girls in south Kashmir's Kokernag area.
It also featured Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, tennis star Sania Mirza, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi.
Andrabi, who is currently detained under the Public Safety Act, heads Dukhtaran-e-Millat.
Social Welfare Minister and separatist-turned-mainstream politician Sajad Gani Lone in a press release on his twitter handle claimed that Asiya Andrabi was not an achiever at all.
“An unfortunate incident of mishandling of publicity campaign on ‘Beti Bachavo, Beti Padhao’ took place in Anantnag, wherein the pictures of Asiya Andrabi was displayed on hoardings along with distinguished women achievers of the country. The publicity wing works in a decentralized format and CDPO’s devise their own publicity campaign which does not require approval of the higher authorities,” he said.
The minister said CDPO has committed a grievous error of judgment by including Andrabi in the list of distinguished women achievers of the country.”
“In any case the department unambiguously states that Andrabi is not a role model neither for the women of Jammu and Kashmir nor elsewhere in the world. She at best is an aberration, representing the aimless fringe afflicting societies across the world,” he said.
Sajad said the CDPO responsible for the goof up has been placed under suspension and inquiry ordered against her for the misconduct.
