New Delhi: Dr. Athar Farooqui, Secretary General of the Anjuman Taraqqi e Urdu Hind has pleaded for stopping Government advertisement to the English dailies with immediate effect. In an appeal issued to the Union Human Resources Development Minister, Farooqui said issuing advertisement by the National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language to the English newspaper was an exercise in futility as these dailies do not devote space to news pertaining to activities pertaining to vernacular languages. He said the amount spent on advertisement in English dailies far exceeded the money allocated for advertising in Urdu newspaper which better deserved the Government assistance.
