Gurgaon, July 21 (ANI): Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra came together on Tuesday to launch the much-touted ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign here on Tuesday.
“I really don’t want to preach and say please change yourselves and be good human beings and do this. I just think it is the most logical thing to do. There is literally no difference between a girl and a boy,” said Parineeti.
The ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign, which means ‘Save the girl child, educate the girl child’, aims to address the issue of declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) through a mass campaign across the country targeted at changing societal mindsets and creating awareness about the criticality of the issue.
It is a major inter-ministerial initiative of the Government of India bringing together Ministries, institutions and civil societies in a rational effort to reverse the declining sex ratio. (ANI)
