The Narendra Modi cabinet took the oath of office on June 9 and soon the portfolios were allocated to the ministers. While Annapurna Devi was made cabinet minister for Women And Child Development, Savitri Thakur was made Minister of State in the ministry. Now, during a recent visit to her constituency Dhar in Madhya Pradesh, the minister was caught off-guard when she had to write Narendra Modi government’s popular slogan ‘Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao’ on a board.

As per her profile on the website of the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Thakur is an inter/higher secondary pass. However, instead of ‘Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao’, she could only write ‘Bedi Padao, Bacchav’. The video has since gone viral on social media with people raising questions on the selection of candidates for such critical posts. The video is being shared by multiple users on X. Zee News has not verified the video.
