Sunil Jaglan, the sarpanch of Biwipur village, recently started a contest where the dwellers of Haryana were asked to send in selfies with their daughters. The state of Haryana is known to have a notably low female-to-male ratio

Because female foeticide, education for women, and violation of girl child rights remain problems in India, PM Modi appreciated the sarpanch's Selfie With Daughter initiative on the radio show.

Here's what he tweeted:

In Haryana, a village Sarpanch initiated a #SelfieWithDaughter initiative: PM @narendramodi

I urge all of you, share a #SelfieWithDaughter. Also share a tagline that will encourage 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' : PM @narendramodi

In no time, beautiful photos of parents with their daughters sprung up all over Twitter under the #SelfieWithDaughter hashtag. By the afternoon, it began trending worldwide and is still top-trending in India.
