The Voice of Chandigarh News
Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, has said that the state government will launch a programme to prevent anemia among children in the state for which Miss World Manushi Chhillar would be the brand ambassador.
He disclosed this while addressing a press conference along with Miss World Manushi Chhillar in Kurukshetra.
Extending support to the “Shakti Project” campaign being carried out by Manushi Chhillar to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene among girls, the Chief Minister said the state government would make free supply of sanitary napkins in all schools of the state to further promote such projects. A sum of Rs 18 crore would be spent on this scheme.
Congratulating Manushi Chhillar for her achievement which brought laurels to the state and the nation at the global level, Manohar Lal said it was a matter of pride and happiness that our daughter, after becoming Miss World, had selected International Gita Mahotsav programme for her first visit to Haryana. Manushi’s answer to the last question “which profession deserves the highest salary and why” paved the way for her to secure the Miss World title.
Speaking on this occasion, Manushi Chhillar said Haryana had given her a lot. Being a medical student of Khanpur Medial College, famous for girls’ education, she had a dream to do something for girls in Haryana. She lauded the efforts made and initiatives taken by the Chief Minister and the state government to improve the sex ratio in the state.
She also thanked Chairperson of Miss World Organisation, Julia Morley, for giving an opportunity to young girls like her and said this year the award for beauty with purpose had been given to India.
Asked whether she will make her career in medical profession or in Bollywood, Manushi Chhillar said five Indian women had won the Miss World Crown. Out of them, only two had opted to become actresses. It is not necessary to move towards glamour world, she added.
Chairperson of Miss World Organization, Julia Morley, Additional Chief Secretary, School Education, Dr K.K. Khandelwal, and other prominent people were also present on this occasion.
