Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday lauded the steps taken by Haryana towards improving the adverse sex ratio and called upon the people of the state to take a pledge in its golden jubilee year to protect the girl child.

Speaking during an official function to celebrate the golden jubilee of the state’s formation here, the Prime Minister said Haryana has taken fast strides in development and its people have made a mark in all spheres of life, and thus the state has the potential to steer the country forward and act as its growth engine.

“Haryana has the potential to steer the country forward as it is in such a position where it can provide this strength. If we move by bringing a change from the village and from each one’s land, it will have an effect across the country.

“If we move forward keeping public interest and participation in mind, then we can achieve something. I am confident that Haryana has much strength to take the country forward and can act as its growth engine,” he told a big gathering at the Tau Devi Lal stadium here.

He also commended chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar for some of the districts been declared open defecation free.

“We should make entire Haryana open defecation free during this golden jubilee year and I have full hope that the state can do it,” he said.
