Newly crowned Miss World Manushi Chhillar met Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Thursday.
After a wait of 17 long years, the Indian model brought the crown to the nation on November 18.
PM Modi spoke to newly-crowned Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar, who’s studying medicine, of the importance of medical education and the need to improve its quality in India.
After a meeting with the PM at which Manushi’s family was present, her father Mitra Basu Chhillar told media that the PM had praised the young medical student and said, “Beti ne Bharat ka naam roshan kiya hai (Our daughter has made India proud).”
As Miss World, Manushi is expected to be busy with the responsibilities of the pageant throughout this year but the PM has asked her to also focus energy on helping the country. “He assured us that if ever Manushi needs the help of the Prime Minister’s Office in her work, she should reach out to the PM,” her father said
