Govt launches 'selfie with daughter' mobile app

NEW DELHI: A new mobile app to shoot ‘Selfie with Daughter’, carrying forward a message given by the prime minister Narendra Modi in one of his ‘Mann ki Baat’ broadcasts on All India Radio, was launched in the capital by the president Pranab Mukherjee.

The president hailed Sunil Jaglan not just on the launch of the mobile-app but on carrying on a campaign in this regard in Haryana.

Selfie-with-Daughter has become a worldwide movement against female foeticide and sex selection. He hoped that this would eventually help in dealing with the problems arising out of gender imbalance.

Mukherjee said the app is an innovative concept and an act of gentle persuasion. He urged people to take photographs with their daughters and upload on the app to make the campaign a success.

The ‘Selfie with Daughter’ campaign was started by Sunil Jaglan in June 2015 in village Bibipur, Jind, Haryana. A former sarpanch, Jaglan has been working in the field of women empowerment and village development. The aim of the campaign is to motivate the society to feel proud to be parents of a girl child which will result in improving the sex ratio in India.
