Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Yojana- is a government of India scheme to reverse the trend of decline in the Child Sex Ratio (CSR). Many questions this approach that a lot of emphasis is symbolic (#selfiewithdaughter) and not enough reforms is taking place. Budget cuts last year and again no increased allocation of funds to the ministry of women and child development have also failed to placate the opposition and women’s rights activist so far. How do you respond to this criticism of the government?
