Addressing the gathering at the event, ETO said, “Our girls are ahead of boys in every field. Whether it is education or sports, girls are not less than boys, provided they are given a chance. Equal opportunities should be given to them.”

Chanakh Singh, Satinder Singh, Senior Medical Officer Sumit Singh and a large number of parents of newborn girls were present on the occasion.
