Srinagar: After facing massive embarrassment for posters that sprung up in Anantnag district showing separatist Asiya Andrabi as a “role model” alongside the likes of Indira Gandhi and Mother Teresa, the Jammu and Kashmir government has launched an enquiry into the photographic campaign.

The posters put up across the district showed the Dukhtaran-e-Millat leader’s image in the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign by the child care wing of the social welfare department in Anantnag district’s Breng block, which is led by BJP MLA Sajjad Gani Lone.

The CDPO of Breng, Shameema Akhter, was suspended over the incident.

The poster also features a picture of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, former prime minister Indira Gandhi, astronaut Kalpana Chawla, tennis player Sania Mirza, retired Indian Police Service officer Kiran Bedi, playback singer Lata Mangeshkar, and other women achievers.
