Sahit Akademi's working questioned

Ludhiana, February 13

Punjabi novelist Mittar Sain Meet has questioned the functioning of Punjabi Sahit Akademi at Punjabi Bhawan. Alleging lack of transparency in the financial matters, he said the academy was not encouraging litterateurs. He said he wrote a letter to the academy seeking expenditure incurred in building of the new block, which was built through grants by MP and Panchayati Raj Department.

Meanwhile, academy president Sukhdev Singh Sirsa said: “Meet is a member of the academy and can check the financial details. All financial details are shared in the general body meetings of the academy, which Meet doesn’t attend.” —TNS
