Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani on Sunday posted a selfie with her daughters as she gave a shoutout to all the daughters of the country on the occasion of 13th National Girl Child Day.
"My daughters are my pride who have set out onto different frontiers with determination and confidence. Give a shoutout to a #DeshKiBeti and celebrate their achievements (sic)," Irani wrote in the caption.
The National Girl Child Day was launched by the Ministry of Women and Child Development in 2008 to spread public awareness on inequalities girls faced in Indian society.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday saluted the 'daughters of the nation' on the occasion of the National Girl Child Day and praised all those working towards the empowerment of the girl child and ensure them a life of dignity and opportunity.
In a series of tweets, Modi said: "On the National Girl Child Day, we salute our #DeshKiBeti and their accomplishments in various fields. The central government has undertaken many initiatives that focus on empowering the girl child, including access to education, better healthcare and improving gender sensitivity."
"Today is also the day to specially appreciate all those working towards empowering the girl child and ensuring she leads a life of dignity and opportunity."
