Says CDPO committed error of judgment, enquiry ordered
Srinagar, Oct 12: Minister for Social Welfare Sajjad Gani Lone Thursday said that an unfortunate incident of mishandling of Publicity campaign on “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” took place in Anantnag, wherein the picture of separatist Asiya Andrabi was displayed on hoardings along with distinguished women achievers of the country.
Lone said the publicity wing works in a decentralized format and CDPOs devise their own publicity campaign which does not require approval of the higher authorities.
“The CDPO in question has committed a grievous error of judgment by including Asiya Andrabi in the list of distinguished women achievers of the country,” he said in a statement issued here.
Lone said that in any case the department unambiguously states that Asiya Indrabi 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. The person responsible for this goof up has been immediately placed under suspension and an enquiry has been ordered against her for the misconduct,” he added. (KNS)
