Bibipur village panchayat has launched the contest in which parents from across the state have to take selfies with their daughters and send it to village Sarpanch Sunil Jaglan through social messaging app Whatsapp.

The best three selfies would be awarded with trophies, certificates and cash prize, the village panchayat declared.

The selfies would be judged by a delegation of 30 women sarpanchs and aanganwadi workers who will be visiting the village from Punjab on June 19.
The delegation would be here to learn about the initiatives of the panchayat to prevent female foeticide and to increase the standing of women in society.

"I have received over 100 selfies with daughters from across the state in last three days," Jaglan said.

"Usually we don't see many pictures of daughters in people's house here. The objective of the contest is to increase importance of daughters in their homes," he said.
