The topper amongst female UPSC Civil Services Exam 2017 candidates, Anu Kumari, has been appointed as the brand ambassador of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign in Sonipat district, Haryana Urban Local Bodies Minister Kavita Jain said today.
The mother of a four-year-old, Anu Kumari, secured the overall second rank in the UPSC Civil Services Examination 2017 through a hard work of 10-12 hours study every day, along with her usual household work. Kumari has graduated with BSc (Hons) in Physics from the Delhi University and has done an MBA (Finance and Marketing) from IMT, Nagpur.
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 need to give them the opportunity to prove their mettle. It is a matter of pride not only for Sonipat but for entire Haryana that daughter from an ordinary family has proved her mettle in the civil services exam," she said.
Anu Kumari's feat has earned her accolades from Haryana CM Mohar Lal Khattar.
Many congratulations to Haryana's daughter Anu Kumari for securing the second position in Union Public Service Commission exam. I hope, state's daughters take inspiration from you and to work hard for ambitious targets, Khattar said in a tweet yesterday.
