The Selfie with Daughter campaign, which began to pay tribute to the daughters, has now come to an end. The journey started from Haryana on June 9, 2015, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Save Betty-Send Betty campaign. Taking selfies with daughters also started with this campaign. A few days later, Prime Minister Narendra Modi noticed the campaign and the Prime Minister praised him on his special occasion ‘Mann Ki Baat’. Not only that, referring to the Selfie with Daughter campaign abroad, the Prime Minister also requested to take it forward.
Prime Minister Mann Ki Baat said in the program that the Sarpanch of Bibipur village in Haryana, Sunil Jaglan, had started a selfie contest with his daughter. Now the atmosphere became such that every father started taking selfies with his daughter and posting them on social media. I really liked the idea.
Knocking in another country
Sunil Jaglan, founder of the Selfie with Daughter campaign, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promoted the campaign worldwide. Due to this it was possible to reach abroad. Happily, the best three selfie awards in Nepal with the daughter are going to be given on this day.
Prime Minister Modi’s appeal has had such an impact that the Selfie with Daughter campaign has crossed the country’s borders and entered other countries as well. In just 6 years, the Self with Daughter campaign has been in full swing in Nepal since June 9, 2020.
