JAIPUR, Mar 8 (Agencies): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive in Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan on Thursday - the International Women’s Day.

Giving a fillip to the Government’s initiative to save and educate the girl child, the Prime Minister will inaugurate the pan-India expansion of ''Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' program, (BBBP) up from the existing 161 districts to 640 districts all over the country.

According to a government press release, the Prime Minister will also interact with beneficiary mothers and girl children of the program.

He will distribute certificates to best performing districts under the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao program.

The Prime Minister would honour the district administrations of Sikar and Jhunjhunu for improving the sex-ratio.

Sex-ratio was alarming in Sikar before the campaign. In 2011, there were 848 females over 1,000 males.

"After innovative steps taken under the campaign, the sex ratio was registered at 930 females over 1,000 males," Sikar District Collector Naresh Thakral had said.

"Improvement in sex-ratio in the districts is a collective effort of people involved in the campaign, which improved sex-ratio in the districts," said Thakral.

In another landmark initiative, National Nutrition Mission, (NNM) will be launched nationwide by the Prime Minister from Jhunjhunu.

He will launch NNM- ICDS Common Application Software.

The mission strives to reduce under-nutrition and low birth weight, bring down anaemia among young children, women and adolescent girls and to reduce the prevalence of stunting among children.
