The hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter received a special mention by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat, following which it started trending not only in India but worldwide.

PM Modi mentioned the contest started by the sarpanch of Bibipur village in Haryana and said, “Some days ago, a sarpanch in Haryana's Bibipur village, Sunil Jaglan, had come up with an interesting idea."
