A day after the Haryana government named film actress Parineeti Chopra as its brand ambassador for ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ programme, a tweet of state health minister Anil Vij created a buzz on Friday.

Vij tweeted, “I do not have any information of anybody appointed Brand Ambassador of my department for Beti Bachao programme’’.
Though the women and child development department is the nodal department for the said programme, the health department too is involved in the health of mother and girl child. Notably, Parineeti hails from Ambala district and Vij too has been five-time MLA from Ambala Cantt constituency.

The state government has already scheduled a state-level function for July 21 at Gurgaon to give a fillip to the said programme in which Parineeti too would be present. The event would be inaugurated by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar in the presence of US ambassador to India Richard Verma.

Meanwhile, it is not for the first time that Vij has left his own party and the government atwitter with his subtle tweets. In the past also, he had tweeted on BJP’s rout in Delhi polls, functioning of the chief minister’s office and even the Olympian pugilist Vijender Singh.
