After the separatist leader Aasiya Andrabi was seen featured in a 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' poster at a tourism festival, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today demanded an inquiry and suspension of officials involved in carrying the picture of the separatist leader on the hoardings of "Beti Bachao Beti Padhao" campaign.
The Dukhtaran-e-Milat chief photograph was printed along with images of singer Lata Mangeshkar, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mother Theresa, Indira Gandhi, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Mother Teressa, Aesia Naqash (MoS), Dr Ruveda Salam (IPS) and Deeba Farhat (IAS).
The banners were posted and created by Child Development Project Officer ICDS Project, Breng, around 70 km south of Srinagar.
Beti Bachao Beti Padhao is a publicly funded social campaign launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government to tackle the decline child sex ratio in 100 gender-critical districts.
"BJP demands strict action against those persons involved into this and suspend the officials immediately involved into this" BJP spokesman Sunil Sethi said.
