Speaking of Urvashi's latest initiative, Vijay Goel, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs said, "It is a matter of pride that this society has always taken initiatives to directly reach out to the lesser privileged citizens. I extend my greetings and good wishes to Urvasi Dance, Music, Art, and Cultural Society for all the success in organising the Samagam and all their future endeavours. I am sure this will go a long way in creating mass awareness and spreading the noble message of Beti Padhao Beti Bachao."
