Speaking at the event, Chouhan said, "We are launching PANKH Abhiyan today under 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' wherein P stands for protection, A for awareness of their rights, N for nutrition, K for knowledge so they progress in every field and H for health. It will be continued for a year."

During the event, the Chief Minister offered student scholarships worth Rs 6.47 crore to 26,099 girls under Ladli Laxmi Yojana. He interacted with girl students through video conferencing. A student said she wanted to become an Army officer when Chouhan asked her about her career goals.

Chouhan said, "When I became MLA, I introduced a scheme for the wedding of girls from poor families so that it is not considered a burden. When I became the Chief Minister, we wanted girls to be seen as a boon, not burden hence we brought Ladli Laxmi Yojana.
