New Delhi, Sep 29 : Considering daughters as Laxmi, the harbinger of fortune and prosperity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called for a need to encourage their deeds on social media and asked the countrymen to highlight the achievements of these daughters by sharing their achievements on social media, using the hashtag # BHARAT KI LAXMI.
Mr Modi exhorted the countrymen to arrange programmes to honuor the 'Laxmi of India' on the upcoming Diwali, since many daughters and daughters-in-law have been performing extraordinarily in teaching, spreading awareness in the field of sanitation and health, or doing society a service by working as Doctor and Engineers. They could be even striving for justice to someone by working as a Lawyer, he pointed out.
In his monthly session of 'Mann ki Baat,' the Prime Minister said this time, 'We should organise programmes to felicitate daughters in villages, towns and cities, in the form of a public function. There must be numerous daughters among us, who, through their perseverance, diligence and talent, have brought glory to their families, society and the country,' he added.
'Our society must recognise such daughters, honour them and feel proud of them and the programmes to felicitate them should be held throughout the country on social media, as we ran successfully a mega campaign 'Selfie with daughter',' the Prime Minister appealed in his 'Mann ki Baat'.
This would encourage the Laxmi of Bharat to strengthen the paths of prosperity for the country and her citizens, he added.(UNI)
