Earlier speaking at the event, Modi said girls from Haryana have made India proud at the world stage on multiple occasions. Let every citizen of Haryana pledge to protect girl child.

Complimenting the state for substantial improvement in sex ratio, Modi said he is grateful to females and elders of Haryana for responding to his appeal of ‘beti bachao, beti padhao’.
