PM Narendra Modi concurrently launched ‘Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana’ in which parents need to drop Rs 1000 at her baby girl’s birth time and after that they can add any amount of 100+ in her account and that daughter will get Rs 1.5 Lac when she turns to 18. Indian Government will open bank accounts for new born baby girls.
“People want educated daughters-in-law but think several times before educating their daughters. How can this go on,” the PM asked.
He said that Haryana took pride in its daughter, astronaut Kalpana Chawla. “So many Kalpana Chawlas are killed in the womb and no one bothers,” he said, adding that most achievers in recent years were girls and women.
“If we don’t realize the crisis brought by female foeticide, our coming generations will face a major problem,” the PM said, while urging the countrymen to take a pledge to oppose female foeticide and other social evils practiced against girl child.
