Bhopal | Urdu poet Manzar Bhopali has met Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav and demanded a probe into the last 10-year tenure of the Secretary of Madhya Pradesh Urdu Academy (MPUA). Manzar met Yadav last evening and handed him a memorandum demanding a probe against the Secretary Nusrat Mehdi, who he alleged was indulged in irregularities in Urdu Academy for the last decade.
He alleged that on one side the state government was laying stress on minority education and development but on the other hand there were shortage of officers in many offices such as the Urdu Academy. To press his point, Manzar alleged that Nusrat was also on deputation at Urdu Academy from the school education department for the last 10 years.
He further alleged that Urdu Academy has shown disparity in distribution remuneration to the Urdu scholars which is against the rule, and demanded that all the Urdu poets should be given remuneration equally. He has demanded from the state government not to appoint any officer from education department to any institution.
The MPUA Secretary had recently approached MP Women’s commission and had filed a complaint with police alleging that Manzar had passed a derogatory remark against her.
