8-Year-Old Climate Activist Licypriya Turns Down PM’s #SheInspiresUs Honour, Claims Government ‘Doesn’t Listen’

A couple or more days ago, Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, announced his day-long social media sabbatical on the upcoming International Women’s Day. He had said that he would hand over his social media account to women “whose work and life inspire us”.

Under the same initiative, PM Modi launched #SheInspiresUs under which he asked the netizens to share women and their stories that inspire them.

MyGovIndia, which is the official Government of India Twitter account dedicated to citizen engagement, has since then been sharing the stories of these extraordinary women which you can read about here.

Among many women, the twitter account recently also chose young Indian environment activist Licypriya Kangujam from Manipur, as one of the inspirations.

However, Licypriya decided to turn down the honour claiming that the government doesn’t listen to her. Replying to the tweet she wrote “Government don’t listen to my voice and today they selected me as one of the inspiring woman of the country. Is it fair?”

Well, it’s a fact that the government usually doesn’t listen, but turning down the honour seems foolish because it’s something the government is doing to inspire other people and not just for someone’s personal recognization. When inspired, these people would collectively come out and support whether it’s environmental sustainability or anything else.
