Chandigarh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen Haryana to launch the nation-wide ‘Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao’ campaign for the girl child and against female foeticide. But this may be nothing for Haryana to be proud of!

Modi will Thursday launch the campaign from Panipat city in Haryana to sensitize people about the safety and education of the girl child, skewed sex ratio, prevention of female foeticide and women empowerment.

As a state which has the worst sex ratio (number of females per 1,000 males) and child sex ratio in the country, Haryana has been chosen for it dubious record on this front. Out of the 15 districts in the country having the worst sex ratio, Haryana accounts for nine, Modi had pointed out earlier.
