New Delhi: It seems that Indian cricketers have started taking Prime Minister Narendra Modi's #SelfieWithDaughter campaign quite seriously, as few Indian cricketers have tweeted selfies with their daughters, including Sachin Tendulkar, the legend himself.

On Sunday, in the monthly programme, Mann Ki Baat, Modi mentioned the “Beti Bachao, Beti Padao (Save daughters, educate daughters)” scheme launched by the government. In the radio programme, the premier revealed that a sarpanch of Bibipur village in Haryana, Sunil Jaglan, had started a “selfie with daughter” competition wherein fathers were to post their “selfies” with their daughters.
Later, Modi asked all fathers to send their “selfies” with their daughters to him, out of which he would re-tweet the good ones.
“The initiative of the sarpanch gives me an inspiration, and that is why I urge you to click pictures with your daughters and post those on #selfiewithdaughter with a tagline,” the PM requested.
