Can someone make me understand what the following sentence is trying to convey?

Mr. Haasan’s claim comes days after Finance Minister D. Jayakumar’s poser to him what welfare measure he had undertaken for people through his fan clubs.

My problem is with the portion that is highlighted above.

Thanks in Andvance!

The sentence is grammatically incorrect, at least in American English (which the GMAT uses).

I've come across some sources saying that 'poser' can be synonymous with 'question' in Indian varieties of English. However, even if we replace the word 'poser' with 'question,' the sentence is still incorrect on the GMAT. The following is wrong on the GMAT:

You'd need to phrase it as 'he asked a question about what welfare measure...' etc.

e: I just realized that you were asking about the meaning, not the grammar! I think the idea is that D. Jayakumar asked Mr. Haasan a question about welfare measures, and that a few days later, Mr. Haasan made the claim described by the sentence.
