Dhruv Sharma, who is Madhya Pradesh West Power Distribution Company Limited’s Additional Superintendent Engineer, has been accused of posting a morphed photograph mocking BSP supremo Mayawati on social media.

In the photograph, the BSP Supremo is shown with a crown with the caption ‘Wonder of reservation at Miss Universe Contest’.

Smiley has been added to the photo with the line ‘LOL (Laughing out Loud)’ at the bottom.

The Dalit organisation Boudh Yuva Jagran Manch claims that the post is a “satire against the reservation policy and Indian constitution” and have approached the Madhya Pradesh cyber cell with their complaint.

The said picture was reportedly posted on Sharma’s Facebook page on June 26.

Boudh Yuva Jagran Manch President Dipak Wagh has asked for Sharma to be sacked and demanded a criminal proceeding against him as “his act was against the constitution”.

The Cyber Cell is looking into the complaint but have not yet booked Sharma for any offence.
