Anu Kumari, who secured second rank in the civil services examination, will be made the brand ambassador of the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign in Sonepat district, Haryana urban local bodies minister Kavita Jain said on Saturday.

Anu, the topper among the female candidates, has graduated with BSc (Hons) in physics from the Delhi University and done an MBA (finance and marketing) from IMT, Nagpur. She hails from Haryana’s Sonepat.

The significant achievement of Anu has given a befitting reply to such people who have killed their daughters in the womb. She has emerged as an inspiration in changing the mindset of people towards the girl child, the minister said in a statement.

Congratulating Anu and members of her family on her success, Jain said, “Today, daughters are in no way behind in any field.”

“There is a need to give them opportunity to prove their mettle. It is a matter of pride not only for Sonepat but for entire Haryana that daughter from an ordinary family has proved herself in the civil services exam,” she said.
