With Haryana politicians vying with each other to congratulate newly crowned Miss World Manushi Chhillar, the reward to be given to the Haryana girl has put the current and former Chief Minister against each other.
While former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda has demanded the government to announce a 500-yard residential plot in Gurugram or Panchkula and a cash reward of `6 crore for the Miss World, CM Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday said honoring Chhillar should not be confined to plots and cash.
Taking strong exception to the remarks made by Hooda that merely appointing Chhillar a brand ambassador for the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign was not enough, Khattar said what the former CM offered was his temperament as Hooda’s thinking has confined to plots and cash.
“One should think above all this,” he said. Khattar was all praise for Chhillar for her significant achievement which has brought laurels to the country.
The CM was more than happy with the reply given by Chhillar to the last question at the Miss World contest in which she was asked, which profession deserves the highest salary and why?
Chhillar had answered, “I don’t think it is just about cash. But I think it is about love and respect. All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. Therefore, I think the profession that deserves the highest salary is that of mothers.”
Khattar said that her reply was in consonance with the highest ethics of Indian culture and tradition, which highly impressed the jury and she bagged the coveted honour of Miss World.
Khattar said that he was proud of her thinking and he might see her next week.
At that time, the CM would try to know her area of interest.
The CM said that the government would happily accept whatever office she would like to hold or ask for any incentive or reward or any help, so as to promote her thinking in the State.
