According to a Times of India report, Aarti has claimed that despite their repeated requests, they have received no help from the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government. She reportedly posted a letter on Facebook asserting that people do nothing but boast about “Beti Padhao Beti Bachao” but does “nothing” for the girl child. “People chant slogan ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’, but in real sense nobody wants to do anything about it. All are corrupt and they do this only to get votes,” Aarti said.
