Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra posted a picture of her daughter this morning on Twitter on the occasion of Daughter's Day.
In the picture, Miraya Vadra, her 16-year-old daughter, is seen enjoying the snow. The Congress general secretary tweeted, "Who knew there was a '#Daughtersday' I thought it was every day."
Miraya Vadra and her elder brother Raihan Vadra, 18, are usually kept away from the public eye. However, they were seen posing for a selfie with their mother in April when their uncle Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination for the Lok Sabha election from Uttar Pradesh's Amethi.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot also took to Twitter and urged parents to celebrate Daughter's Day. He tweeted, "Happy #DaughtersDay to all proud parents and their #daughters. Let us celebrate having a girl child, feel proud seeing the little girl grow and rejoice the success and achievements of our daughters when they grow up."
