Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged people to launch a campaign to honour daughters; who have made a mark with their achievements in various fields for public good .
PM Modi spoke to people on various issues. He said that greeting people with festivals, the real joy of festivals is to bring smiles to the faces of others. To remove the darkness from their lives.
He also called for the sharing of Diwali gifts and sweets to bring happiness to those who cannot afford it.
The prime minister said on Diwali; Goddess Lakshmi is welcomed in homes as it is believed that she brings prosperity and happiness.
“Daughters are considered as Lakshmi in our culture … can’t we felicitate daughters in our villages and cities by holding public programmes,” he suggested in his monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio address.
Modi recalled the success of the “selfie with daughter” campaign to drive home his point.
