The hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter started trending worldwide on Sunday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked people to post their photos during his radio address Mann ki Baat.
Addressing the nation on his radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Prime Minister Modi said that it will help to battle the skewed sex ratio in the country. “In Haryana, a village Sarpanch initiated a #SelfieWithDaughter initiative. I urge all of you, share a #SelfieWithDaughter. Encourage ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’,” Prime Minister Modi said on Sunday.
The idea took Twitterati by storm, with proud fathers -- and in some cases proud mothers -- posting photos clicked with their daughters.
One of the proud fathers was Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. And here's my #SelfieWithDaughter. My Daughter, My Pride! #betibachaobetipadhao. Photograph: @Dev_Fadnavis/Twitter
