October 17, 2019

A contestant at the Miss Kohima pageant, held in the capital of Nagaland has attracted much praise for her message to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During the question and answer round, the contestant Vikuonuo Sachu was asked by one of the judges on the panel what she would tell the Prime Minister if she was invited for a chat with him.

The video of her answer has gone viral online. This is what she said:

If I were invited to have a chat with the prime minister of India, I would tell him to focus more on women instead of cows. - Vikuonuo Sachu, Beauty contestant

The 19-year-old's answer drew laughter and cheers from the crowd. The video has been watched almost 60,000 times on social media. Ms Sachu was crowned second runner-up in the pageant.

Incidents of groups of people attacking alleged cattle smugglers have been reported frequently over the last few years.

Last month, PM Modi had said that it is unfortunate that some people get shocked on hearing the words "Om" or "cow". "Some people, if they hear words like 'gaay' (cow) and Om, their hair stands on end. They feel that the country has gone back to the 16th century. Can one talk about rural economy without animals," he had said.
