Women’s Day 2020: 8-year-Old Climate Change Activist Turned Down PM Modi’s Honor on Women’s Day

Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted a few days ago said that he is thinking of leaving his social media account i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube on this Sunday. Next, he said that "I will inform you all later". After that, removing the curtain from suspense, he said that on March 8, International Women's Day 2020, he will hand over all his social media accounts to 7 women and they will handle them for a day.

Some inspiring women stories have been shared on the Government of India Twitter handle MyGovIndia. One of them is 8-year-old climate change activist LicyPriya Kangujam. The story of LicyPriya Kangjuam has also been shared by the Indian government on its Twitter handle. Licy thanked the government for this honor, but she is not very happy with it.

In fact, Licy wrote in a tweet, "Government don't listen to my voice and today they selected me as one of the inspiring woman of the country. Is it fair?  I found that they selected me amongst the few inspiring women from 3.2 billion people under the initiative of Prime Minister".

In another tweet, Licy wrote, "Dear @narendramodi Ji, Please don't celebrate me if you are not going to listen my voice. Thank you for selecting me amongst the inspiring women of the country under your initiative #SheInspiresUs. After thinking many times, I decided to turns down this honour. ??".

Significantly, LicyPriya protested in June 2019, demanding action on climate change from Parliament.
