New Delhi, June 29: Hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter was trending on Twitter on Monday after activist Kavita Krishn triggered a row with her comment on the SelfieWithDaughter campaign. Comments were flying thick and fast after All India Progressive Women Association (AIPWA) secretary Krishn tweeted that the prime minister has a record of stalking daughters. Her tweet read: “Kavita Krishn @kavita_krishn Careful before sharing #SelfieWithDaughter with #LameDuckPM. He has a record of stalking daughters.” Krishn’s tweet was in response to Prime minister’s radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ last night, where Modi had urged people to share a selfie with their daughters and tag it as #SelfieWithDaughter. In his speech, the prime minister said the initiative is to celebrate the girl child and to stop female foeticide. The idea is to promote Modi’s flagship project ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. The sefie campaign was initiated by a sarpanch in a small village in Harya. Modi also promised to retweet those who were using the hashtag, #SelfieWithDaughter. (IANS)
